I've arrived and open a book with a chapter on Sri Lankan Jews

I've arrived in Colombo (Jan 6, 2007) and will use the opportunity to visit gravesites and generally sniff around. But, a great surprise today - J. B. Mullers new book "The Burghers" has a chapter, yes a chapter called " Semitic Ancestors" on Sephardi Jews in Sri Lanka, Complete with family names. I will create a PDF version of this chapter soon. I am very excited because I had a email from Dr Nathan Katz who is an expert on Indo_ Jews and has lived in SL, but did not have lots of information.
