Getting Started with British India Ancestry – Families in British India Society (FIBIS) Website
Do you have British ancestors in India? From the first British settlement at Surat, established by the East India Company in 1619, to Indian independence more than three centuries later, British administrators, soldiers and workers have been part of the fabric of Indian society.
The Families in British India Society (FIBIS) website is a good place to start your search for ancestors in British India.
Search the FIBIS database of more than 1.25 million names to find ancestors who lived and worked, were born, married or died in India during the colonial period.
The database includes transcriptions from official records of the India Office and East India Company. The digital images of the original documents can be found on findmypast database.
