Family History Tours Distance: 1.1 miTourist Information Gableson Avenue Brighton, United Kingdom BN1 5FG
Family History Tours Ltd was set up in 2007 in order to co-ordinate a holiday to India for the members and friends of The Families in British India Society www.fibis.org. This first tour was entitled "India Mutiny Tour" as it followed the route of the Indian Mutiny (or First War of Independence) that took place in 1857. The participants were able to visit churches, graveyards, cantonments and other sites that their ancestors had been involved with.
Now we are co-ordinating three more Family History trips to India in 2015 with Indus Experiences (details on the website www.familyhistorytours.wordpress.com ).
If any other society would like me to co-ordinate their Family History tours, please contact me.
