To Liza Mahjhrin,

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:

My grandmother, Lily Wood, was born in Namtu, Shan State in 1921. Her step-father was William Wood, who died a few years after she was born. She later discovered her real father was Arthur Oberlander, who managed the Burma Corporation mines and smelter in Namtu. She married Philip Bell in 1943. They left Burma during World War 2, returning in 1947 to Rangoon. Philip Bell then was a lecturer at the University of Rangoon until 1967 when the family left for Malaysia.

I would like to know if anyone remembers them and if they know anything more about my grandmother's family. I do not know the name of her mother, but she married a Chinese man after William Wood died. She had a daughter with him, who may or may not still be living in Burma. Her name is Daw May Yee, also known as Mary. Her husband I believe is U Kyin Aye and they lived in Shan State.

Any information would be most welcomed!

Maybe I can help a bit.
