The India Special Interest Group meeting is a hybrid meeting for members with an interest in researching family history related to India. Members should purchase a ticket to attend this event by logging in and selecting the event with "(Register)" in the title.

The topic for this meeting is:

"Finding Clara - Solving a British India Family Mystery"! 

At this meeting our group member, New India SIG member Sean Kelly will share his experiences breaking down a formidable brick wall to identify his great-grandmother, about whom his family new little more than her given name.  Using a combination of on-the-ground research, DNA profiling, development of theories, accumulation of evidence and the deductive reasoning techniques of a detective, Sean not only conclusively identified Clara, but discovered a whole new British India family story.
