Family History Tours

Family History Tours

A fascinating joint venture between Indusexperiences and BACSA, the British Association for Cemeteries in South Asia aims to use cemeteries as a means of increasing awareness of Britain’s contribution to the sub-continent’s heritage – and, at the same time to help travellers and tourists connect with their own family histories.

To quote: ‘Seeking fame or fortune, Britons first came to India more than 350 years ago. Some returned home as wealthy men. Many others, including soldiers, women and children left their bones here. Discover the life they led before they found their last resting place in India’.

Indusexperiences can arrange a tour, to personal or group specifications, not only for Remembrance of illustrious ancestors, but as a celebration of India and the indelible British link. Please contact Yasin on 020 8901 7320 for further details.

The 50 tour members who participated in one or more of the three trips to North, South and East India back in 2015. They found it fascinating to walk through similar paths as their ancestors and to uncover information about their forebears – for example finding an entry for a family marriage in a parish register in Trichinopoly or being captivated that their ancestor’s grave was one of the larger tombs in the South Park Cemetery in Kolkata.
