Some major sources for Ancestors in the Indian Public Services


Written by Lawrie Butler, a former FIBIS Trustee and Researcher for FIBIS, who is extremely knowledgeable about resources held at the British Library and has spent many months compiling this Fact File which is intended to enable family historians to understand a very useful, but often complex series, and to explain how relevant material may be located in it. Also included is an edited version of two articles by Tim Tomas of the British Library, which offer a broader survey of the sources available on the Indian Public Services.
