British India

India is an entirely new place for me to be researching.  I’m doing some research for a friend and finding it utterly fascinating.  This cemetery in Secunderabad has a lot of British interments and these great monuments.

The Families in British India Society is a wonderful research resource with photographs, maps, military records, cemeteries, censuses, maritime, wills and probate and much more.

 

The photos on  the FIBIS website are geotagged showing their location on a map.  As I know nothing about India this is helping me get my bearings.

This website is a great example of modern technology being used to further genealogical research.
