Hi I'm trying to trace my family beyond my grandparents and would like some help.
What I know so far is that - from my mother's side Conrad Joseph Fernando married Gertrude May(?) Louise(?) Fernando (nee Karunaratne)and lived in Bambalapitiya (Gertrude also had a sister Muriel who married Rex Rabot) - from my father's side Balapuwaduge Percy Michael Mendis married Widanelage Ethel Piyaseeli Mendis (nee de Mel) and lived in Laxapathiya, Moratuwa
I'm told that there is a varied mix of Burgher and Southern ancestry on Gertrude's side of the family which I'm specifically interested in tracing. The other branches are mostly regular old Sinhalese :)
