Trying to find Cummins

Hi Alina,
I've just found your old message here on this website and am very excited to reply. My dad, Leo Benedict Cummins was (is) the youngest brother of Tony, Brendan and Nina. We haven’t seen him since I was 8 years old in 1973 in New Zealand. He moved to Sydney when my parents separated. The only contact with his family since then was via some old letters we still have that Mum received from Mary (his mother) and Nina. Since these letters we have had no contact with the family. I live in Wellington New Zealand and my brother lives in Sydney. As far as we know we are his only siblings. I haven’t given you too many details here as I would like to let Mum know first. However I would love to hear from you.

Hi I am trying to find my half brother and sister - Julian and Jacqueline Cummins. Their father was Brendan Joseph Cummins who was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1940 and migrated to Australia late50's/early 60's. He married their mother Patricia Hand in Sydney after I was born. Also any information on my father would be useful. His father was Thomas Cummins and mother Mary Riley and they lived at 61 Wangerton Road Dublin. They also had a son named Tony and a daughter named Nina.
