To Maylee Han,|
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:
I am the daughter of Mya Han who was from Rangoon. I do not know much about my family in Burma. My Father was born December 25, 1925. He had 2 sisters. One married a man from India. Her name is Nellie Zaw and lives in California. The other sister was named Shirley. All I know about Auntie Shirley is that she was missing an arm and died in the early 1980's. Dad taught Civil Engineering at The University of Rangoon. He married my Mother who is an American. I was told that Dad had political ties in Burma. He had to escape to avoid being punished by the Junta. I was told that when the military took over Dad was the next in line to be Prime Minister. Things made sense when I found out about that. Dad also represented Burma at the United Nations. I have never met my Grandparents. I only talked to my Auntie Nellie on the phone three times when I was a teenager. I met a second cousin during that time also. I am very proud of my family and also proud to be Burmese (Half anyway). I would love to know if I have anymore relatives. This is a HUGE part of my life that is missing. I do know that the British gave Dad the name "John". Dad was in World War II as a prisoner. He was missing his left index finger. It is really sad to say that Dad died July 31, 1985. I have two daughters who never met this extrodinary man. My oldest was named Mia Lin Han in honor of her Grandfather. Please if there is anybody who can help me find any member of my family, I would be eternally grateful.
