About British India Births and Baptisms from ecclesistical returns

In compliance with data protection laws fewer details and NO images are available for births dating to after 1915. Full details are available to researchers who visit the British Library.

I seem to recall from a separate post that the British Library records may not be complete?

The above link/URL looks correct but isn't delivering the desired screen.

Google "British History Family History Research"

From a separate Rootschat post where a Rootschatter had visited the British Library**.

"The BL only has about 70% of the India records, the rest have been lost in the passage of time or never deposited when they were supposed to have been".

** - in this instance the birth record was amongst the 70% held.

Knowing their religion may help you and occupations.
Some of the British Army soldiers serving in India have their wives and children listed on their Service Records. FindMyPast.
If you know which area they lived in, church records may help.

Thanks Brionne,

As they are not mine..I have emailed of a whole lot of questions to the person..so I'm now awaiting on a reply from them.

So sad not knowing so close..most of us have a least a few generations to go on with

Hi Yonks

I visit the British Library where the records are held on a regular basis.

If you get more information over the weekend which relates to living people, send me a pm with the details and I'll take a look maybe next week.

You can search on FindMyPast for baptisms but the entries after 1918 are redacted so you won't any extra detail but the information is available in full at the library.
