General Questions

1. Is there a source whereby names of children born to serving soldiers in India in the 19th Century can be found?
2. Was there ever a census of military families as above?
3. What criteria do I have to have to find any information should there be a 'yes' to question 1.

Most grateful for any help on the above.

Danke schon; merci beaucoup; diolch yn fawr; shukran; thanks.
The GRO has a section for overseas forces BMDs and for BMDs registered at British Consuls overseas. These are available if you have a subscription to 'The Genealogist'. If you post details of probable dates and names someone will probably look them up for you.
