  2. Re Family Nebauer
    I have been digging into my family background for some time and have a reasonable bit gathered. I have only just been informed of this web page and have found it very interesting especially Bavarian history. Many of the names mentioned in your lists appear in our family ancestry, and others appear in letters from my Great Grandfather Eugene Nebauer back to Dorfprozelten.
    As shown in above lists Eugene and Caroline arrived in 1852 with his mother and sister arriving in 1855, they landed at Morpeth NSW and settled a few years later in the Gungal area of the Upper Hunter.

    • hi Keith, Welcome! It’s great to be making contact with so many Dorfprozelten descendants in Australia. I think your family is especially fortunate to have those letters from Eugene back to Dorfprozelten. He was probably largely instrumental in encouraging others to come. Would you like to join our Dorfprozelten facebook page? It’s at https://www.facebook.com/groups/541563712595845/. It’s a closed group meaning only members can see what’s posted but all you have to do is ask to join and the door will open 🙂 Cheers Pauleen

      • hi Pauline
        My grandmother was Mary Nebauer who lived at Gungal, NSW and her grandfather was Eugene Nebauer who immigrated in 1852. My step sister Gail Wilson has completed a lot of research on our family tree and attended a reunion of the family some years ago.
        I have been to Germany twice but I am yet to get to Dorfprozelten but would be keen to no what it is near?

  3. I’m from the Hennys. My great-great grandmother was Sarah Mildred Henny. Regards from Perth. Wish I could get the history sorted past John Kenny (b 1810).

    • hi Greg, I have some info on the Henny family but it’s not in very coherent form. If you’re still interested could you please email me via the email on my “Contact me” page. Apologies for the long delay. Pauleen

  4. Hi!
    I’m also a descendant of Eugen Nebauer and his daughter Maria Anna Rosina. She married a Jessen (from Frankfurt) and I am descended from their daughter Ellenora.
    I’ve always been interested in researching this family tree as we never knew anything about our German roots as it seems like our family hid them quite well! My Grandfather knew Ellenora was German but never told us.
    It’s amazing to see some old photos of the Nebauers – I can see a lot of family resemblances.
    Thank you!
