Tips to Keep in Mind

  • You may need to compare the information of more than one family or person to make this determination.
  • You may need to search for both their Indian name and their English name.
  • Be aware that, as with any compiled source, transcription errors may occur.
*Compile the entries for individuals and families with the same surname. 
  • Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have lived in the same locality or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify.
