  • 7 generations uncovered
  • Portuguese ancestry discovered (Pereira and De Silva)
  • 6 Family names so far:
    • Wheeler, Hassett, Wharton, Pereira, De Silva, Lee
  • 9 family names by marriage:
    • Smith, Gibson, Murray, Hassett-Murray, Blakeman, Callaghan, Astridge, Gordon, Watts
  • Many interesting stories, but three in particular stand out:
  • Global interaction with the blog has led to family members making contact
    • in addition, many people – academics, historians, Anglo-Indians, bloggers – are actively interacting in the project
  • Many family photographs, stories and items have been shared
  • 2016 trip to India revealed many insights into family who lived in Bombay.

Plenty more to look forward to in 2017!
