Hi Sylvia

I have 2 responses to your post.

1. How would i be able to have access to the Wolvendaal records that you have photocopied? I live in Canada. And, is it the same limited index on the Pilot project for Wolvendaal on the internet? Or is it a more thorough transcribed info?
(cos in the pilot project, only parts of the baptismal and marriage records are transcribed i think).

2) I am interested in the project Larry and you mentioned (church records that need to be photographed or photocopied or in some way preserved). I used to work for a Christian organization that go to developing countries and do different projects. This cause would be a worthy cause. order to get a team to be doing this, finances would certainly be needed. Good work ethics...people who are self motivated and have interest in this kind of thing is necessary. If someone can organize a Sri Lankan team, it would be better cos then some of us from other countries don't need to go there. But, i wholeheartedly agree that this project needs to be don. And.......some temples also have genealogy/history information needing to be documented. They were the keepers of information before and during European colonization.
