9781848845732: Tracing Your British Indian Ancestors

Tracing Your British Indian Ancestors gives a fascinating insight into the history of the subcontinent under British rule and into the lives the British led there. It also introduces the reader to the range of historical records that can be consulted in order to throw light on the experience of individuals who were connected to India over the centuries of British involvement in the country.

Emma Jolly looks at every aspect of British Indian history and at all the relevant resources. She explains the information held in the British Library India Office Records and The National Archives. She also covers the records of the armed forces, the civil service and the railways, as well as religious and probate records, and other sources available for researchers.

At the same time, she provides a concise and vivid social history of the British in India: from the early days of the East India Company, through the Mutiny and the imposition of direct British rule in the mid-nineteenth century, to the independence movement and the last days of the Raj.

Her book will help family historians put their research into an historical perspective, giving them a better understanding of the part their ancestors played in India in the past.

Review:

"...Pen and Sword have hit another home run, with another great addition to their family history series. This book will be of value both to the beginner and the more experienced researcher. It should be added to every good British research collection and is worth adding to one's personal library." (FGS Forum)

“I’m pretty sure we don’t have any links to India in our ancestral family tree, but if we did, this new volume in Pen and Sword’s groundbreaking series would be invaluable! An essential addition to the collection.” (Books Monthly)
