India Families resource

If you have ancestors who spent time in India for any reason, you may like to look at for any family events that may be recorded in the India Office Records. This index so far covers about 10% of their biographical sources.

Clive finally solved a long-standing question mark by finding our George POLLARD's first marriage there in 1819 whilst George was serving with the 14th Foot Regiment. Hurrah! But when did wife Sophia die?

We're also now wondering if the Andrew Pollard listed there as also serving with the 14th Foot when he and his wife died in 1819 might actually be George's older brother. One question mark is replaced with more, par for the course with genealogical research!

If you think you have found any more Wing-born people in that database (sadly they don't list birthplaces so I can't run a global search looking for any) please let me know.
