I am looking for the parents of Mildred Felsinger born ca 1910 ? Below is an account of Mildred ,her father was Captain Felsinger lost in Boneo,I am not too sure if (?) Mildred Felsinger was a Princess, at all or maybe intermarried ancestor, I think it might be the lost relatives of Anita Arendt , who Žasked on Feslinger in Malaya, related to the Arendt & Kochs , of Ceylon.
Below are details of her adpotion by the family Karl .
""
Charles Ernest Tardy and Emma Florence Geraldine Locke, each family from each child of this couple tells their story. Mildred Felsinger was not biologically from one of Charles and Emma's children but she was adopted into the family of Charles and Emma Tardy aka Karl's 2nd born, Louis Karl, 1879-1926.

Louis Karl met in S'pore his wife,Australian born Dvora Silberman, d/o of a Luthanian mother and Polish father. They lived in Penang and there their two children Vera and Lorna were born.
I quote Vera's story." My mother had adopted a baby girl from the convent in Penang (Convent Light Street orphanage). Her name was Mildred Maud Felsinger, the 7th child of Capt. Felsinger.(( She was a descendant of Princess Riza of Kedah and Capt. Francis Light.))???

Capt. Felsinger was lost in Borneo waters.
Mildred was six weeks old when my mother adopted her, my mother and Mildred's mother being friends.
Mildred was with us until the day she died in 1983, a few days after her 74th birthday."
When Louis Karl was murdered in 1926, Dvora took her 3 girls and sailed on the "SS Marella" to Sydney, Australia.
