Thanks Ainslie for sharing your knowledge and giving lots of websites and ideas on where to look for our ancestors in India and SE Asia.

This morning I have looked at the India Births and Baptisms, 1786-1947 and India Deaths and Burials, 1719-1948 databases on Family Search website and have found quite a few records that belong to our ancestors. I had the year of a great great grandfather's birth but now have his exact birthdate and christening plus details of his 3 sisters.

I didn't attend Ainslie's talk which sounds like it was very interesting. I imagine the FIBIS site was mentioned. I have used it extensively (Families in British India) and also the Latter day Saints batches which concern India.

The next India and South East Asia SIG meeting is on Saturday 28th January 2012, beginning at 10.30am in Unit 4, 48 May St Bayswater (cost $2).

The meeting will be a "hands on" practical session, so after a very short business meeting, we plan to have a demonstration of the Find My Past; FIBIS and Family Search Internet sites. These demonstrations will address India Research specifically.

After the all important Morning Tea break the group will move into Units 5 and 6, where we will look at the location of the library's ISEA resources, and have a quick demonstration of how to operate the microfilm readers. Then it will be time for you to do your own personal research. The meeting will close at 12.30, but those who wish to stay on once the library opens at 1 pm are welcome to do so

9 of the 12 LDS films of the Registers of European Soldiers in India arrived, so there are plenty of things to look at.
