British in Penang about 1900 Posted by: Kaye Cole (ID *****3819) Date: November 08, 2010 at 23:27:23 of 616
I'm looking for information about William Henry Snelling b. Devon abt 1871, married Rebecca Sobel abt 1905, possibly in Penang/Singapore(?)They had numerous children b. 1906-20.
How can I research Malaysian BDMs from Australia? I'm a fairly experienced researcher but know nothing about Asian research. I'm also interested in background info on this family. Rebecca was said to be a Russian dancer, b. 1877.
I know a bit about William but wonder how and when he got to Malaysia. Could he have been in the Brit. Army? Any clues on available sources would be most welcome.
