Hi Edmond,
Thanks for your help.
Will be very hard, may not be able to find out any more.
But we have come a long way since we started and am grateful for that.

Dear Gail, Welcome to FamilyTreeCircles,

If you search for HANNON at Free Settler or Felon? you'll see quite a bit of information on this surname, there's even two references for a Thomas HANNON and one for a Thomas SHANNON. Could be your man ... location is Millers Forest and Maitland NSW.

Were any of your ancestors convicts? I sure had plenty.

Have you thought about putting your family tree online somewhere? I would recommend Geni start off as a free tree, then upgrade to GeniPro if you wish. The best thing about this site is you can invite your living relatives and find new cousins along the way to collaborate with your data.

Family history societies in the locations of where your ancestor/s lived and worked are useful to join even for a year if you are really serious about digging up your history.

State Records Office of NSW, Australia if you do a keyname search for Thomas Hannon there are five mentions on a convict index, two gaol (jail) photographs and one mention of dying intestate (Will).

One of the surnames mentioned above 'CAHILL' interests me. I have lots of CAHILLs from Cashel, Co.Tipperary, Ireland who emigrated to Australia C1840s and settled Maitland, Morpeth, Newcastle, Wallsend NSW Australia. Remember once here the Irish settled and stayed together even if they were not related.

Another one of my favourite sites for research has been Rootschat register as a new user, free site, then scroll down to their Australia childboard and post some lookup requests. Please be careful to list any and all information that you already have, what your sources are etc. as 'genealogists' are very busy people. Lots of rootschatters have the pioneers indexes on cd rom and are more than happy to do lookups. Once you have done all your Australian research right back to the original entry into Australia, then you can goto the Ireland boards and continue your research.

One tip I can give for now is if you have lots of bdm certs to obtain in your 'hunt' I would use a Transcription Agent, for NSW there's Joy Murrin for example.

Best wishes,
