Taj Mahal with Ancestral Roots

Did your ancestor ever worked or stayed in India? Or Where they part of the Colonial rule? Or Did you ancestors moved out of India long time back?

This trip will be best for person of Indian origin and for descendants of Europeans countries who’s forefathers were in India once upon a time.

Finding ancestors and relatives or epitaphs would be a daunting task, make it a memorable one with a visit to the Taj Mahal when you come looking

A substantial number of overseas Indians or descendants of the Indians had left Indian shores in the second half of the 10th Century or in the early decades of 20th century to such far off places as the Caribbean, African continent, Mauritius, Fiji etc. The present day generation in the Diaspora nurture a deep urge to know their ancestral roots in India for sentimental reasons.

Efforts have been made in the past by members of the Diaspora to establish the identity of their ancestral villages & to re-establish the social link that was snapped in the distant past. However such endeavors yielded limited results.

You can now also log in to Government Of India initiative for the person of Indian origin for finding the roots at A website designed to address the queries from the members of the Indian Diaspora on their ancestral roots in India in a systematic manner, in an interactive mode by developing a database through a questionnaire, transmission of the data to the administrative unit in the relevant district in India.

"The older you get, the more you feel connected with those who came before…you” Come discover your roots with and connect. Still thinking? Here are some nice links to trace your roots in India. (Families in British India Society )
