Researching family history can be fun and rewarding.

A few years ago I knew very little about my roots in India. The best thing I did was to join the India rootsweb mailing list for people researching their family roots in India. There are many helpful people on this list who can help you on practically any area of family research, history, geography or even life in India.

The best website on the web for advice in researching family history in India is Family History in India

I also highly recommend joining the India Rootsweb Mailing List.

You can also submit your surname interests to my Surname Interest Register  which now has over 750 surname interests submitted. Several people have already been successful in finding cousins & long lost family through the register.

Research Tips

Be sure to evaluate the source of your information. Remember, you can't believe everything you read!

Remember, most everyone has two family names: your father's, but also your mother's. Don't feel you must restrict your research to just your paternal family tree
