Anne, first off, the names you are researching are mostly Sinhala and as we do not read Sinhala, Tamil or Portuguese we have not been able to decipher all films we have looked at. We can just about guess the Dutch Taal entries by now.
There are even Ola leaf entries photographed by the LDS. We have been trying to get a sample of entries translated but without any luck yet. If you read Sinhala or Tamil we could email a copy of some of the entries we have photocopied, just to see what they say.
Contact us on and we will email.
Do you know how to use the LDS on-line library film catalogue? This usually tells you what language films are in.
As to British era Church records, CCS and Military, we will be going to print soon. Cheers, Coreen&Larry, in a cyclone battered Nth Qld. Australia.
