I spend hours researching my Indian ancestors, with some success, but was reluctant to shell out for the hardback version in case it told me what I already knew. So, bought this on Kindle, which I knew was probably a mistake, as wonderful though Kindle is, it is not an ideal medium for reference or non-fiction works. What I have read is fine, but I'm already frustrated by my inability to mark and flick to and fro to the bits I really want. I may indulge in the hardback when I have finished skim-reading this version, if I feel it has enough that is of use. No one to blame but myself, though.

Wow!! A brilliant book which brings any researcher (novice or experienced) quickly up to speed. It provides the reader with relevant background historical information, useful "how to" explanations, and great lists of sources to check (both online and hard copy records). I estimate that this book it saved me many hours on a recent visit to the British Library to research in the India Office collection. More importantly, I was quickly finding relevant records by following the suggested sources and approaches in the book. The "Tracing Your xxxxx Ancestors" is a great series and this is one of the best books in the series.

This is a great book on this facet of family history. With so many British having lived in India we all can learn something from this volume. Nick, The Nosey Genealogist.

A really useful book for those interested in the history of British India and the people. Helpful web sites and where to go for further information. Easy to read and understand. Well worth purchasing if you are tracing your ancestors in British India.
