Jay-Thomas Patrick Heslin here. With regards to your inquiry (Heslin&Shaunnesy...that might be Shaunnesy w 1 "n"), you might want to check passenger records from Ireland to either Castle Gardens, New York or Ellis Island, New York as a reference point. If you read my posts on genealogy.com or rootsweb.com, you'll see I've been doing research on my Heslin Family for about 3 years. One thing I have learned is you get alot of help from other people in your search & for that I am extremely grateful!!! Having said that & living in Southern California, I am fortunate to have easy travel access to the LDS Genealogy Site in Santa Monica. I usually go there at least once a month to gather information & discuss genealogy with the good folks there. If you want to, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) any additional information you might have on Thomas or Dridget & when I go to the LDS Center in 2 weeks, I'll be more than glad to look-up your information on their microfilm system. Best regards & good luck on your Heslin Family search. Tom Heslin.
