Hi Mike, It looks like you have been waitng for a while for a response. I'm Leanne whi is married to Allan McInnes - youngest son of Olive Mcinnes (nee Hogan) - eldest daughter of Olive May Hogan (nee WUNHYM) - eldest daughter of James Wunhym and Edith May Hon. James is an older brother of Albert Ernest Wunhym born c1889.
Is this the correct family linkage with you. I have a little bit of "verbal-hand down history" but who knows how accurate it is. I am also eager to find more about the family on my husbands behalf - so if we can exchange any information that would be fabulous

: : For some time I have been searching for other family members of the same family name, other than half brothers and sister living in Victoria. I know of that the family was in Ballarat (Vic) begining during the gold mining days, and also in North Queenland at Ravenswood. Also I am seeking information on the orgins of the chinese family name of Wun-Hym and Wunhym.
: : As far as I know anyone with the identical family name are all related. When my step father was alive, Albert Wun-Hym (deceased) he had mentioned that the name should be extended by adding the word 'fookue' speeling is my interuption but I can find no reference to such a family name. I was born in Victoria in June 1934 and when my mother Phyllis Brockwell married
: : my step father about 1936 or 1937.

: : Can anyone advise the origins of the name. Such as to its meaning, area in China etc..
: : I would be interested in hearing from anyone of the same family name.

: : My postal address is 35 Wardell Drive Penrith NSW Australia 2750
