  • Help on Historical Figures for Research Project

    Hey everyone! Hope this is allowed on this board...
    I am doing a research project on ethnic politics and am required to do very basic research on previous cabinet members of Thailand. I took names from the Europa Yearbook, but there are unfortunetaly inconsistencies with spellings and I am having trouble finding specific names. If anyone could help me find the ethnicity of the following:

    (1960+)
    Lt.-Gen. SURACHIT JARUSERANI.
    Gen. PONG PUNAKARN.
    PHYA ATTHAKARI NIPHON.
    NAI KASEM SIPAYAK.
    PHRA PRAKAS SAHAKOM
    PHRA BAMRUS NARADOON.
    NAI BOON CHAROENCHAI.

    (1965+)
    Air Marshal M. M. VEJJAYANT RANGSRISDI.
    Dr. SERM VINICCHAIKUL.
    PRAKAS SAHAKORN.
    Gen. PONG PUNAKARN.

    ... I have a couple more but I will see how this goes first.

    An example would be:
    Field-Marshal THANOM KITTIKACHORN. --> I googled him and found that he was of Thai-Chinese origin because of his descendants. I've tried searching around many of these names but often come a little limited due to my inability to speak/read Thai
    (In reality, most/if not all of these people should just be Thai.)

    But anything helps! Even if you only search on name for me that is more than enough.

    Thank you everyone!

    I really want to help you but I don't interested in politics. I tried to find the ethnicity of the first one on your list, Surachit Jaruserani, but I couldn't found it.
    In my opinion, he must be Thai because he was a minister.
    Good luck!!!!!
