Hi all ~
It seems that there are a few of us on this list after all! So far I've not
connected to any of the surnames listed but it's early days.
In the meantime I wondered whether anyone would be interested in a lookup? I
have access to a few Directories and would be happy to look for names. The ones
I can lay hands on are:-
The Ceylon Directory. 1863
The Ceylon Times Directory. 1873
The Ceylon Handbook and compendium of useful information for 1903-4
Ferguson's Ceylon Directory for 1926
Ferguson's Ceylon Directory for 1940
If these dates are appropriate then just send me the required names and say which
Directories could be useful. I'll do any lookups when next in London, which
will probably be in the New Year.
