I'm glad to see activity on this site! I too am looking for
sources for Ceylon in the 1840's.
Rebecca Douglas and William Elliott, and their son, William,
was born there. How do we get birth records? She was the
headmistress of the Columbo Seminary school for girls. Is
the school still there? Are there researchers available in
Sri Lanka? How does one also locate census and military
information there? I hope someone out there
