REICHin Burma

Journal by petersim

I have discovered that I have two great grandfathers named REICH, one on my father's side and one on my mother's. Let's hope they were different people.

Both were in Burma (now Myanmar) in the late 19th century.

I've managed to extract this information from my 93 year old aunt.

It is difficult to extract more.

If there are any REICH hunters out there scouring south east asia I would be interested to hear from you.

My family connection via Burma includes names of
Richardson, Irving, Reich, Sim (and/or Sime)

Monifieth, in Scotland, I suspect has marriage birth data for at least two ancestors.

Do you know someone who can help? Share this:

Christiana definitely resonates.
I remember her with some terror.
I was only 6 or 7 and staying with grandpa in Bangalore on my way to NZ.
I had just left the security of (?) (revolvers, rifles) life in Burma
to Grandpa's house in Bangalore.
Actually have happy memories of Bangalore, somewhere there are photos.

I can recall sliding on my belly down the path from the front door to the gate at Bangalore during a monsoon downpour.

As I understand it Christiana took over domestic arrangements in my grand fathers house after my grand mother died, associated with my fathers birth in 1916.

One of her sisters would have been my grand mother, On your info I would guess Amelia.
