To Norma Hewitt,

I am replying to your query for a lost person, which I saw on the Britain-Burma Society's Lost Relatives web page (http://shwepla.net/Misspers.mv). You said:

Would anyone be able to help/advise me?

My Great Grandfather was William Algie Browne and lived and worked in Burma in the late 1880s-early 1900s. He was described as a civil engineer and possiby worked for the Railways. Places mentioned are Rangoon, Pegu and Maymyo.

His daughter, my grandmother was Amy Dorothy Algie Browne and was born in Rangoon in 1888. There is no documentation for this.

William's wife was, I think, either Burmese or Burman, but I can find no trace of his marriage. Nor of William.....

My Grandmother came to England in 1918 and never returned to her beloved homeland. Any help/information/advise about my Great Grandfather, or how to trace him, would be much appreciated.

Maybe I can help a bit.
