BOOK - Tracing Your British Indian Ancestors, A Guide For Family Historians
By Emma Jolly
Published by Pen and Sword Books, S. Yorkshire, UK (2012)

Softcover... 29.95 (C$)

Tracing Your British Indian Ancestors gives a fascinating insight into the history of the subcontinent under British rule and into the lives the British led there. It also introduces the reader to the range of historical records that can be consulted in order to throw light on the experience of individuals who were connected to India over the centuries of British involvement in the country.

Emma Jolly looks at every aspect of British Indian history and at all the relevant resources. She explains the information held in the British Library India Office Records and The National Archives. She also covers the records of the armed forces, the civil service and the railways, as well as religious and probate records, and other sources available for researchers.

At the same time, she provides a concise and vivid social history of the British in India: from the early days of the East India Company, through the Mutiny and the imposition of direct British rule in the mid-nineteenth century, to the independence movement and the last days of the Raj.

Her book will help family historians put their research into an historical perspective, giving them a better understanding of the part their ancestors played in India in the past.

About the author:
    Emma Jolly is a professional genealogist and writer, and a member of the Society of Genealogists, the Association of Genealogists and Researchers in Archives and the Families in British India Society.
      "I am a professional genealogist and author. I specializes in writing history. My work has been published in a variety of journals. Current publications are Family History For Kids (PQ Publishing, 2007), Tracing Your British Indian Ancestors (Pen & Sword, 2012), and Tracing You Ancestors Using the Census (Pen and Sword, 2013). My latest book, My Ancestor was a Woman at War, was published by the Society of Genealogists in January 2014.

      Women often did more in wars than is popularly assumed. My book is intended to explore women's roles in the past and even if your ancestor did not serve officially, there were other areas in which she may have worked. During war, women worked in the roles left by men who had entered the armed forces; these roles include working in mines, on farms, in factories, in transport, in civil defence and at home, These women made an invaluable contribution to the war effort".
