RUSSELL Family Tree

with links to British India

The WebThis site


Hello, Im contacting you to ask if you are able to find out about my family tree in India. Thomas Russell was my great grandfather born 1855 and was Anglo Indian. We know he was a jailer in Rajamundry. Im trying to trace who his father was. I was born in West Bengal ( Kharagpur) in Sept 1945 to an anglo indian mother, and father who was serving in the RAF.(British) Mothers name was Naomi Wilkins. Her mother Lillian Olivier Wilkins. This is the side that we dont have much information about- namely who the father is of Thomas Russell. How do we find this out please? We have been to the India information here in the UK but the only likelihood that we came up with was Thomas Jenkin Russell who served in the army. This needs to be clarified more and I would really appreciate finding out more. regards Angela Chandler
