Subject: [SRILANKA] 1843 General Directory
Listers we have a complete copy of the
1843 General Directory
of European Residents, Principal Public servants and Inhabitants,
Generally, of Respectable Standing:--- including the Secretaries and
Principal Clerks in the Various Public and Private Offices.
A SAMPLE OF ENTRIES FOLLOWS. THERE ARE 18 very clear A4 Pages.

Kriekenbeek C. A. Assistant Col. Surgeon
Leembruggen H. Survey Dept
Le Mesurier A. J. Planter
Alice Holt Pusilawa
Toussaint W. Inspector of Police

Although this Directory does not have a direct influence on Primary research
(BMD), the list is a window of some families in Ceylon in1843, and we would
like it to be seen for free,on the internet.
As we are grey, wrinkled techno novices, could someone please help us, as
was done with the Kandy pictures?
We have a Gmail Ac which we have never used and have other goodies from our
research that we would like to put up for listers to refer to at will. In
anticipation Coreen& Larry.
