    My mother’s maiden name was Melder. She was born 13 Dec 1927 and grew up in Madras, later marrying Patrick Manen and moving to Calcutta. I am in SriLanka till 23 Aug 18. I just spent 3 days in Galle unsuccessfully trying to track down some of Mum’s very early relatives. I move to Colombo to Movenpick hotel on 14 Aug 18. Can you enlighten me please. My mum is 91 yrs and my Dad passed in 2013. we live in Newcastle Australia. Thank you
