Armed Forces / Re: Greenwich pensioner?
« on: Thursday 10 May 18 19:23 BST (UK)  »
Hello, Just logged on to tell you it was FindMyPast. Other people have helped you out. I discovered that my ancestor had eye and leg injuries. By tracing his ships (named in the records) found out that he was on a ship that stopped the French Revolutionary Army landed in the south of Ireland with the intention of supporting an uprising. He never went ashore. Not all good news as the Irish received dreadful treatment.

My 3xgrt grandfather was a Greenwich pensioner. He was in the Marines during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. I found lots of records for him. I am certain they were on Find My Past. I have just tried to check but FindMyPast is experiencing "technical difficulties".

Presumably you have already looked at the website for Families in British India.
https://www.fibis.org/

If you have not used this site before you need to scroll down on the Homepage to see what is available.

Find My Past has records of India. Though obviously not certificates.

I help at a local family history group. I dread it whenever someone has this problem! I am always scared I will erase all the info they have collected on one person!

If you want to be really careful you could also create a GEDCOM with just the wife and the son. Then you could import to your main family tree if you need to. Good Luck!!
