In Reply to: Re: MCCLELLAND FAMILY IPOH CIRCA 1912/1914 by Mary Anne Schooling of 668

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
