New British in India Collection 6th April 2017

The TV series 'Indian Summers' starring Julie Walters has created an interest in India under British rule. This new record set reveals information about those ancestors that lived in the subcontinent, their lifestyle and the communities that they lived in.

Millions of British people went out to India in the past and so many family historians will have an ancestor that made the journey. For some, India would turn out to be their last resting place and among their ranks were merchants, soldiers, sailors, civil servants, missionaries and their families.

This Release Includes:

  • Parish Records of British in India
  • Headstone Records of British Cemeteries in India
  • British War Memorials in India
  • East India Registers
  • Indian Army and Civil Service Lists
  • Image Archive - British in India

To browse the Image Archive for relevant photographs, search for the tags 'India' and more specifically 'Hill Station' for pictures like the one above.

The release of The British in India Collection on TheGenealogist now allows family historians to find ancestors who went out to British India in a very broad-ranging set of resources ranging from the early 1800s up to the 1920s.
