Hi List, first time member of this List.
I would like to pose a question if I may please?
I have two people who were allegedly born in Sri Lanka/Ceylon.
A, Kingsley Vernon OORLOFF some time before 1900, the son of Charles Joseph and Louisa Wilhilmina De La HARPE.
B, Aidlin Beatrice Maud CLASSEN, born 25 March 1897, daughter of James Gerald and Aidlin Maud SCHOKMAN, both parents possibly of Dutch descent.
I have no idea of whether there are records centres situated within Sri Lanka, or whether they would have been within their parents embassy records for birth abroad.
Any ideas would be very much welcomed.
Many thanks and kind regards Mick McAllister
