Last month Alan Hagenson from Queensland Australia sent me the Fitzhenry family line that his sister had married into. (Sorry it's taken this long to get it up on the Blog, Alan!)
This is being actively researched so if anyone recognises the people in this line or wants to be put in touch with Alan or his sister please drop us a line.
I've put the first three generations of Alan's tree here - there are more recent generations with living individuals, but you will have to contact Alan to share these.
