AIP Christmas #10 Families in British India Society (FIBIS)

This post is part of the Anglo-Indian Project Christmas series 2016.


A fantastic resource for Anglo-Indian research is the Families in British India Society (

…an [charitable] organisation devoted to members with an interest in researching their ancestors and the background against which they led their lives in ‘British India’.

The Society was formed in November 1998 to provide a resource for people researching families and their social history in India from 1600 up to, and even after, Indian Independence in 1947.

Membership is a very reasonable £15 per year (at the time of writing), which provides access to the FIBIS databases and a very helpful community of fellow ancestry researchers and experts.
