The elusive background of Mary Sheehy. — 2 Comments

  1. Thank you Christine. I really enjoyed your blog. I have an elusive Mary Egan who came out in 1856 with only Ireland written on her marriage certificate (married in Brisbane) and no parents listed. So I feel a little envious that you have this information even if it’s not all true.

    • It is frustrating isn’t it Gayle, these mysteries are what keep us honing our research skills. With Mary Egan, is there a way of checking English records to see if they have more information pertaining to her as a passenger? Do you know what ship she came out on?
