Hi There Evelyn,

Hope this message finds you well!

Boy have you no idea how delighted I am to have stumbled upon your message.

Arthur Bertram Joseph's sister is Emma Martha Joseph. Emma is my great-grandmother. Emma is married to my great-grandfather, who is also a Burgher - Victor Stanley Pereira. I'm not sure if you know of Arthur and Emma's other siblings - Caroline Joseph, Tom Joseph, Flory Joseph as my mom can recall.

Caroline Joseph was married to Charlie Bray. Not sure who Tom Joseph married and Flory Joseph is married to a certain Mr. Fernandez in Singapore.

I just spoke to my mom of her grand-uncle Arthur Joseph(your grandfather). She remembers him as well as your grandmother - Florence Helena Ware. My mom calls her Grand-Aunt Flory. They had Sybil Joseph, Joanne Joseph, Patsy Joseph, Vivien Joseph as well as another son being the eldest - egelbert(the name is wrongly spelled). Who is your dad?

My mom told me that if her memory serves her right, Arthur Joseph was burried in KL. My mom went for his funeral. Sybil is burried in St.Michael's Churh burial ground.

You know...I'm very keen in building my..now "our" family tree. How are we related now?

Where are you at now? I'm in Malaysia.

I wrote to Kyle Joustra to find out more on both my great-grandparents - Victor & Emma. Do you have any information on the Joseph's side?

My mom told me that Joanne Joseph married a certain Mr. Gardner in England.

Do you keep in touch with anyone at all in the family?

Let's build this shall we?

You can write me at, writemeshawn@gmail.com

Look forward to hearing from you soon Evelyn.

Take care & God Bless!!
