Lauricella Dornbirer:

Very impressive site. Superb navigation and layout, this site has a crisp, sharp feel to it. Unlike many genealogy sites on the Internet, the De Fonseka's have spent considerable time and effort to source their material. This always lends an air of authenticity to genealogical information. Lisa and I learned a great deal about Sri Lanka's history.

Keeper of the Souls

There is a culture, which believes a soul doesn't die until that person's name is spoken for the last time, I like to think as Genealogists we prevent that final death

I enjoyed visiting your site; you have clearly put a substantial amount of time and effort into the research of your family and this is evident in the range of information you have available.

Internet Beacon Award: You've created quite a thorough resource for your family name here. It was interesting to look through all the material.  This should be valuable to those interested in your Genealogy.
