Leonie and Greg,

Regards,

Damien Balkin

Hi there, I believe I'm descended from Patrick BALKIN mentioned in Generation No 1 in your post here. I'd be really happy to hear from you and find out more (and of course add in the info I've gathered as well). Feel free to send me a message on here!

Dear Dean, Hi. Your Patrick Balkin appears to be the same fellow that is in my tree.

His brother (Thomas Balkin)'s daughter in law Sarah Imelda O'Shea was my relative.

All the information I've collected is already posted here (except for the living of course).

Cheers,
Alison.

I am looking into the Balkin Family tree on behalf of my husband.

I am interested in: Generation 1
vi. PATRICK BALKIN, b. 12 Feb 1830, Kilkenny, Ireland; d. 1916, Victoria, Australia; m. JOHANNA MARY QUINLAN, 1866, Victoria, Australia; d. 1911, Victoria, Australia.

Patrick Balkin is my husbands 2nd great grandfather. I would be very interesting in finding out where you got your information from.

Kind Regards,
Shannon

Dear Shannon, Hi. I believe source of 'Generation 1' was Leonie Foley (a Balkin descendant). Sadly the email address that I have for her now appears outdated. It's possible that she might have a family tree online at GenesReunited, search for BALKIN and see if there's a tree owner by the name of Leonie.

Michael W Balkin in Australian Cemeteries Index, born 1877, KIA France 1916.
Michael was among the 5533 Australians killed, wounded or missing during Fromelles action july 1916, in a 24 hour period, result of bungling by superiors, most notably General Gough British Army. The Australian 5th Division had been in France only a matter of days, when they were sent to their deaths. Michael's remains, along with hundreds of others, were discovered a few years ago in a pit dug by the Germans in Pheasant Wood, Fromelles, identified and re-buried in new Australian Cemetery in Fromelles, on land gifted by the mayor. I visited him in april 2012.
