Hi all,  I am related to John Dalton who married Catherine Markey in Tasmania in 1866.
John was a convict tried & sent from Co Kilkenny, Ireland to Van Diemens Land (Tasmania) in 1847.
I am their 2 x great-granddaughter, originally from Hamilton NZ but now living in Australia.
Have info to share - my research mainly is aimed at getting more info from their Irish History pre 1847 which is difficult as so many records were destroyed.
I have also visited Tasmania and have taken quite a few photos and visited the church in which they were married in New Norfolk.
