India Office records for findmypast.co.uk

7918e4fd-d426-4c94-9e39-f75cbb4b017f

The Families in British India Society (FIBIS) is partnering with Brightsolid Online Publishing Limited (BSOP) as part of BSOP’s digitisation project of many of the India Office Records (IOR) for the British Library. BSOP will be making the IOR available online to users of its findmypast.co.uk website.

Included in the digitisation project are the two million records of baptism, marriage and burial of European and Anglo-Indian persons in India, which will be a huge asset to family historians.

FIBIS will be linked with all relevant introductory pages so findmypast.co.uk users can easily visit FIBIS and take advantage of the wealth of free information available on its website. Details of everyday life, occupations, the military and explanations of terms peculiar to British India are all available.

FIBIS will maintain all its existing databases and, in future, will focus its efforts on providing new material and databases from alternative original sources, such as newspapers and directories, to complement the IOR data.
