Have a lot of births marriages etc to look up for part of the family who moved to India with the British Army after WW1. I need help as it's proving really hard!

1) Where do I post on this forum for Look ups?
2) Where can I look for myself? Am on Ancestry and FindMyPast but no luck so far, only one birth record.

Yes I have found one baptism record only on there under the British India records, but now struggling to know how to go any further.
