About the India & SE Asia Group

  • PDF

India and South East Asia SIG (ISEA)

During the course of our genealogical travels many of us have discovered links to India and South East Asia, either via our ancestor's involvement in the East India Company, the British Army, family migration to Australia and elsewhere, or we may just call it home, by virtue of the fact that we were born and raised there. 

Whatever your reasons, hopefully we will be able to help each other with queries and problems by drawing on our collective knowledge ... and come up with ideas and possible solutions that will assist in our endeavours.

Our outcome will be to have increased knowledge and understanding of India and South East Asia, in respect to our research interests - where our ancestors might be found, what they did, how they lived.

As a result of numerous expressions of these interests, an inaugural meeting was held on 23rd October 2010 at WAGS, with 18 attendees and 13 apologies. The group now meets once a quarter as the Western Australian Genealogical Society Inc. India and South East Asia, Special Interest Group or ISEA.
