The head or "hoofd" thombo is a register of names of the landholders in that part of Ceylon under Dutch administration. This register contains the landholder's name in both Sinhalese forms--his wasagama and his patabendi nama--and any alias by which he might have been known, together with his caste and occupation. Also recorded are the names and ages of his family including his wife, children, grandchildren, and occasionally other relatives by blood or marriage. This series of thombos was completed between 1766 and 1771.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
