Researching Anglo-Indian ancestry – pdf version
FIBIS fact file No 1: Researching Anglo-Indian ancestry
– pdf digital version of printed Fact File
By Geraldine Charles
pdf Digital copy of 21 page booklet
No 1 in a series of handy guides being produced by the Families in British India Society to help research sources.
Essential for any family historian with blended ethnicity. The booklet contains two expanded and updated articles previously published in the FIBIS “Journal”: “The children of John Company: the Anglo-Indians” by Geraldine Charles, and “A Luso-Indian voyage” by Cliff Pereira. These two authorities provide invaluable information: definitions of the various terms used for those of mixed race in the Indian sub-continent, a brief background history of these communities, reading lists, and, by using their own families as a basis, a demonstration of how to effectively research Anglo-Indian ancestors.
