These genealogies are available for perusal.

A good starting point for those working on their family genealogy are the indexes to the Baptism and Marriage registers of the Dutch Reformed Church, Wolvendaal, Colombo, which are also available in the Library.

BAPTISMS


These indexes range over a period of 250 years, from 1709A.D to 1952A.D., and are arranged in some convenient order of alphabetical and chronological arrangements.

The entries recorded are not only of baptisms which took place in the main Church at Wolvendaal and the branch Churches in the suburbs of the town of Colombo, but also those which were solemnised by the various itinerant Pastors of the Church during their visits to the several Parishes in the villages of the rural areas and the outposts of the Jurisdiction of the Church in Ceylon at the time.

MARRIAGE


These indexes range for the period from 1709A.D to 1892A.D. They are in alphabetical and chronological order and cover the marriages solemnised at the Wolvendaal Church, Colombo.

All the indexes contain and extensive array of names, each entry has its own volume and page number, which would eliminate searches of the indexes for those seeking copies of certificates from the Church.

Anyone wishing to lodge copies of their family genealogy in the library, are welcome to do so, please contact me. Thank you.
