You seem to be in a similar position to me, about 3 years ago.
1) go to the rootsweb web site, click on web sites at the top, go down to other places,
click on Sri Lanka. This is an excellent site with thousands of pages of information to
read through and links.
2) Use the links to the mailing lists, rootsweb Sri Lanka and there's another one Gen
Web I think its called. You can search these lists with your surnames, also follow the
link to the Dutch Burgher Union pages, where they have many family genealogies, to check
out, you'll have to go through them all, to find any with your surnames.
3)Also the History of Ceylon Tea site has copies of Fergusons directories to check
By now you've realised this might take several years of searching, theres no easy
answer, but it can be wonderful when you find something.
