    usage of words

    hello,
    Could you please proofread these sentences for me:

    1. The culprit of the assassination is Mr.Henri,father thereof was also a criminal.There goes the saying 'like father like son'.

    2. " can't you remember the name of the person whom you danced with at the ball?" asked Perdita.

    3. Please tell me the name of the girl whom I'll be living with.

    4. Could you provide some information about the people with whom I'll be staying.

    Do you know where I can learn more about the usage of 'whom'?

    kindly thank you for your answer(s)!
    p/s: is it possible to add 'kindly'?

    Do you know where I can learn more about the usage of 'whom'? What else do you want to know. You seem to be using it fine.

    kindly thank you for your answer(s)!
    p/s: is it possible to add 'kindly'? It's very polite, but not usually done. It is not actually right as you have used it. Thank you kindly for your answers.
