Can anyone offer any suggestions for finding information on my great grandfather -
Alfred Alexander Scott. He was supposed to have immigrated from Scotland to Ceylon and I
have an idea he was a merchant of some sorts. He is listed as Colonial General Merchant
on my grandparents marriage certificate. My grandparents were married in England in 1916
but my great grandfather is listed as deceased. Following their marriage, my grandparents
went to India as my grandfather was a manager of a coal mine there. My grandfather was
born in Ceylon in about 1883 as was his sister in 1877 so that should provide some sort of
time frame for my great grandfathers time in Ceylon - from at least 1877 to 1916. I am
told that he was buried in Galle.
Any help would certainly be appreciated.
