Colombo District - Registrar General - Divisions
Posted by: Julian Lovegrove (ID *****7420) Date: January 30, 2008 at 03:12:35

Hello all,
Does anyone here know which 'division' of Colombo, St Paul's Church Pettah was in?

The Registrar General divided Colombo District into about 21 divisions, ie: Galkissa, Imbulgoda, Kelaniya 1 & 2, Kotte, etc, etc, and it would make life a little easier for researchers using LDS microfilms, if we had a street plan with the districts shown on it.

Has anyone else thought of this?
The districts seem to be as follows: Galkissa, Imbulgoda, Kelaniya, Kohilawatta, Kotalawala, Kotte, Mapitigama, Milagiriya, Moratuwa, Nawagamuwa, Peliyagoda, Slave Island, Talangama, Tittapattara, Udammita and Weligampitiya.
In the meantime, if anyone can suggest which division Pettah was in, it would help enormously.
Thank you
