The Families in British India Society is well known for it’s quality genealogy website focusing on those British ancestors who lived and work in India. The society announced recently that they have been allowed to place online the John Morgan collection of photographs taken in the 19th & 20th century in India.
John Morgan is a collector of material which he then hires out to film & TV as props. Amongst his wide ranging collection are three photograph albums, all labelled and taken in India. What a find! John was kind enough to allow the society to have them reproduced and uploaded onto their website.
The photos are free for everyone to browse through, but exclusive to FIBIS members are two indexes which allows much quicker access to those photos which are of interest. Membership is £15 per year for UK members and a few £’s more for European or Worldwide based members.
This collection is a joy to browse through, the photographs are very evocative of a world that is no more.
