A partnership between the British Library and ‘Findmypast’ has made over 2.5 million family history records from the India Office Records accessible online. The digitized documents reveal a vast amount about the lives of the British in India from 1698 to 1947 including: careers and domestic life, the lives of women in India, records of baptisms, marriages, wills and burials and civil and military pensions.

The indexes can be accessed for free and there is a small fee for downloading images or transcriptions of documents. All the records can be accessed for free on site at the British Library.
