My wife's family originates from Sri Lanka. There is a considerable amount of genealogy online and together with family history, we've managed to put together a reasonable family tree.
Jennifer Greft's website gives excellent early history on the 'earliest' Ebert - George Godfried Ebert (from Aarneburg; later called Brandenburg). We have traced the line back to George Godfried's second marriage to Rebecca Hulo. Their 2xgreat grandson, Victor Henry Reginald Ebert (born 27 Oct 1862, and m. 29 Dec 1886 to Adela Henrietta Koelmeyer), son of Pieter Frederik, is my wife's great grandfather.
Victor's son Victor Ashley (b. 6 Dec 1889, m. 14 June 1915 to Hilda Pereira) moved to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where my wife's father Earle Edward was born (13 May 1920).
We are unable at this point to get any detail on Victor Ashley's siblings except their names (Isla Glen Adel, Ivy Lorna Evadene, Vernon Vaughan, Florence Adelaide Pearl).
Would appreciate any detail on this branch of the family. Am also very interested in obtaining copies of the DBU write-up on the Eberts.
