Welcome to the world of British India family history

It is estimated that three million Britons lived and served in India over the three and a half centuries of British presence on the sub-continent, and it is not surprising that large numbers of family historians have discovered that they have ancestors who spent some or all of their lives in the British Empire’s ‘Jewel in the Crown’. A fascination with India, its culture and its people runs deep in our psyche.
