Are we cousins? If so, please contact me as I have inherited several boxes of family photographs and documents that I am in the process of digitising and happy to pass copies on to other family members.

I am an Executive Committee Member of the British Association for Cemeteries in South Asia and a trustee, Website and Social Media Manager for the Families in British India Society. I am also the administrator of the FIBIS DNA project. I have been researching my own family history since 1998 and set up the FIBIS DNA project in 2011 to help people with British Indian ancestry break through their brick walls as the cause is often an Indian ancestor, but there is no documentary evidence to prove it.
What do I do in my spare time? More genealogy, some of which I post on my blog. I am also currently digitising family photos, negatives, slides and documents which I share with family members via an experimental private website I built to synchronise with Adobe Lightroom. I use Lightroom to catalogue the records I digitise. I love experimenting with idea’s like this and although I am still fine-tuning things, it seems to be working really well.
As my area of expertise is India during the time of the British Raj, I also try to check the India Unsourced Profiles page once a week and see if I can source at least one profile, thereby removing it from the list of unsourced profiles.
A few of my famous cousins include:
To aid WikiTree in the administration of my account should I be incapacitated, or in the event of my death, I hereby give permission for all private and public profiles I'm presently managing to be transferred community members on my trusted list or to the Leadership Team to be farmed out to any interested party or parties.

Our G2G forum has a social gathering spot, the Tree House. Please consider stopping by to introduce yourself.
VERY IMPORTANT: The more documents, sources, dates, and locations you provide on the profiles you create, the stronger your branches and our mutual global tree will be. If you don't know the correct date, please estimate using before or after.
Thank you for helping in our mission to build a global tree with only ONE profile per person.
Hope you enjoy WikiTree!
