British author seeking help on Aspy Engineer’s family

I am wondering whether you might be able to help me? I am a British author researching the history of the de Havilland Gypsy Moth aircraft.
One of the most superb stories connected with the aeroplane is that of Aspy Engineer who won the Aga Khan aviation Trophy in one in 1930. You have a summary of the story here:
I am wondering  whether you might be able to put me in touch with the family as I would like very much to read the unfinished memoirs mentioned in the article as I am sure it will be helpful for my book. I am planning for the story of Aspy Engineer to be its opening chapter.
I think that some of the great man’s family is still in Bombay, while others are in California.
With kind regards,
Alex Norman

Looking for Adi Behram Marker

My name is Lily Seeney and I live in the UK.
This is long shot in the dark but I am trying to find my first cousin ( who the family lost since my mum passed away) who used to and probably still does in Pune.

He is my mama’s son. His name is Adi Behram Marker. I know he has a son and daughter. Son’s name is Behram as well. Not sure of the daughters name. I have tried asking some folk who live there but have drawn a blank. I remember going to my Uncles house as a young girl with my mum and vaguely think it was in Salisbury park.

Is there any way of finding out some way if he is still alive or has passed on. I am now 69 myself and my sister is 83.
If you can point me any direction as to whom I could contact would be grateful.

Kindest regards
