Armenian Graves, Inscriptions and Memorials in India DACCA

FIBIS member Liz Chater has recently published a 160 page book with colour photographs of all the remaining graves at the Armenian Church in Dhaka.  The book is being self published by Liz via www.blurb.com where the book can be purchased.

About the book

It contains in excess of 160 full colour photographs of all the remaining graves at the Armenian Church Dhaka (Dacca, previously in Bengal but now in Bangladesh). In addition, I have included over 25 individual family tree charts that relate directly to those Armenians buried in Dhaka. These charts have been drawn up from my own research of the Armenian community’s existence there between the 18th and 20th centuries. I have also uniquely cross-referenced the grave inscriptions with the original Armenian Church death register entries and where possible, I have also included important factual information from those registers. All transcriptions and register entries that are written in Armenian have been expertly translated into English, to further help the Armenian family history researchers around the world who may have a South East Asia genealogy connection.
