Hi Chris, how are you? We are fine. Lots of rain and cold over here. My sister and her husband from Melbourne are coming over here next month. It has been six years since I have seen her. I don't recall getting your Skype link yet. Can you send it to me. My id is "wunschs" without the quote marks..

I am still working , albeit slowly on the records gathering. However we had a nice experience. I was searching for a Bed & Breakfast (B&B) lodging and found one almost one mile from Creevedonnell. I have communicated with the owners about the area and they know about the Dunn family. Well I was reading my cousins Lauries compilation and in one of the Dunn letters it mentions the family name of BREDIN. Well that is the same name as the people who own the B&B. Another email to ask if we were related came back with a Yes we are....Very interesting. I will keep you in the loop. In the meantime, please send your Skype id so I can give you a call. Send it to my email please.

Best wishes,

John Wunsch

Chris, it looks like we may be second cousins. My Dunn family is descended from John Dunn and Margaret Hanna (Creevedonnel) Glendermott Parish. I think you may have corresponded with my cousin Laurie, in Melbourne a while ago as he recalls your blog.

He (Laurie) also added an entry on John Dunn and Margaret Hanna which is listed in your Name Index on your page, however there is an error. Donegal is not where he (John Dunn) was born, if he was actually born in Creevedonnel, because Donegal is about 45 miles to the West near Letterkenny.

The Hanna's (Margarets family) are also from the Londonderry/Creevedonnel area which is in GLENDERMOTT Parish, which is about 5 miles SE of Londonderry proper. Creevedonnel is a "Townland" which is the smallest recognized land holding in Ireland.

Please drop me an email at my home address We have much to talk about. My mother still has a good memory and lots of documentation from John and Margaret's children, her (my mothers) Great Grandparents.

Hi Chris,

Unfortunately my photographic hobby has not included Templestowe - not a this stage but I have a nagging thought I have something on Templestowe, not been able to find it though.

It may be with another disk of information that I haven't indexed as yet - if I find something I will let you know.

Hello Chris, Yes I know of John and his website and have corresponded with him. Our Minters come from Ramsgate, Thanet, Kent. Martin married Rosannah in Kempsey 1869. If we have close lines it would be way back. Regards Jan
At 3:43am on July 15, 2009, Janet Minter said…
Hello Chris, I searched members for Minter and came up with your name. Wondering if we may have similar lines. My Minters mainly lived Kempsey then New Lambton but others did go to Sydney etc. Warmest Regards Jan Minter
