(Sorry Sheryl for encroaching on your discussion but I didn’t know of another way to contact Gordon. I tried his email address but it bounced back so I’ve resorted to posting my note here.)
Gordon, I note that you have literally hundreds of postings on the site many in response to peoples enquiries.I’m not sure of your interest. If the following does not fall into your bag of tricks, so be it.
My name is Peter PATTEN and I have been using“Genealogy.Com”to research a number of our family members, for about ten years.Note my entry in “Tasmania, Australia Genealogy Forum”search the forum for “Convict”.
Our John Lorkin was transported to Hobart on the Wanstead out of London arriving in 1828.
The reason for this note is to ask your opinion on how to determine where in the UK John LORKIN came from and what dirty deed lead to his transportation?
