This is part of a message I sent to Jean Lemphers:-
I have been tryingto find out about my grandmother Marjorie's family.I eventually did a mailshot to all the La-Brooy, Ohlmus and Andree listing in the Sri Lanka phone directory and had one response from Clinton La-Brooy who is very distantly related and gave me all the information from the Burger Journal going back to 1750.My Aunt Cynthia gave me the information on Olive's children.Your father, my father and aunt would be first cousins.I have tried to trace Hughs family in Englandbut have notsucceeded so far.
I have a wedding photograph of Dulcie (Dad had this) and with myfirst trip to Sri Lanka later this month thisspurred me own to try and track down the family, as I am sure they would love to see the photo and I also am very interested in tracing my roots.I am going to be spending acouple of days in Colombo before moving to the east coast - Batticaloa area.Therefore, I will not have much time to do research etc.
Jean gave me some info. Do you have info on Peter and David Jansz or any of my grandmothers' siblings family.I would appreciate any information you may have to help me in my quest.
