Hello Mary Anne Yes I do know the Schooling family.In fact I am still in contact with Rae in London. We did as youngsters go to the Schoolings house in the Harbour Board area. My uncle Eddy is the one who is friendly with Phyllis.He lives in London.My mum, his sister lives in Singapore with her other 2 sisters.Uncle Eddy was born in Batu Gajah in 1914.I do not know any Eurasian families in Ipoh. I am trying to trace my grandmother's family(if any exist)Do you know of any researchers in Ipoh? My mother's family bible was lost during the war so nothing is known of the family. My mother and her sisters were evacuated to India and when they came home their mum and dad were dead.To this day we do not know how grandpa Henry Charles died.Some say he was a air warden and he died during a bombing, others say he was executed by the Japs. I am doing my best to get as much info as I can but it seems I am so far away.My sister is helping out in Singapore too. What I am really after is my grandmother Edith's people.Yes I did read the article you mentioned. Would like to hear from you again. When I saw your name I was wondering which Schooling you were and I kind of guessed you would be related to Rae's family. Thanks for replying Gail.
