Marian Minjoot grew up in Melaka in the 1950s.
After Malaya gained independence and became Malaysia, Marian left to Canada and the US, before getting married and settling down in England.
Her husband David Mason has done extensive research on the Minjoot family, and his documentation has helped Marian keep the knowledge of her identity as a Eurasian from Melaka.
This is Marian's story.
