Subject: BMDs prior to 1900
Last April I wrote to the Central Records Room, Colombo asking if it is
to obtain a certificate for a 1880 birth. This is an extract of a
".... regret to inform you that the records of births, deaths and
occurred prior to 1900 are damaged. Therefore I am unable to comply
On that basis it looks as if anyone requesting a certficate for an event
1900 might stand a chance!!
Anyway, I'd be grateful for comments about the "damaged" records. And....
anyone on this list actually ever got a certficate of any sort from
