Info on Heinrich Hankz
« on: Monday 04 February 19 12:01 GMT (UK) »
Hi there

We have confirmed a gt gt grandfather Harry Hanks was actually born in Germany around 1865.  From a Blog "german australian alians to militarism" we have found a comment that his real name was Heinrich Hankz.

I have looked around but can absolutely nothing for that surname.  Apparently his father was also a Harold  (thus maybe also a Heinrich?) and he maybe had a sister Emily.  They were in Glasgow around
1886-1890.  Harold senior was listed as a Shipwright and Harry jnr was a seaman in Australia between 1890-1892.

Anyone who can shed any light on this - it would be much appreciated.
