Four months since the last time out to reflect on progress, this is a review of the past few months.
It’s easy to lose track of information and begin getting confused by it all, so this is another quick summary of:
(1) Where is the Anglo-Indian Project up to?
(2) What next for the Anglo-Indian Project?
This summary will focus on progress since the last review posted on 1 September 2017.

WHAT NEXT FOR THE ANGLO-INDIAN PROJECT?
2018 is upon us. This year the Anglo-Indian Project is looking forward to the publication of its first e-guide In Search of Ancestors in British India: Where to Start. There is also a book being written throughout 2018 – publication date may move into 2019.
There will be some more data collection drives in 2018 – a number of additional ancestors have been discovered, and records will be collected in 2018 and posted when ready. This will inevitably open up further lines of enquiry and the discovery of new records and information.
Draft posts remain over 160 – more keep being added, some get trashed, slowly the better ones make their way through to be posted.
Some other exciting sub-projects are evolving within the AIP and through international collaboration – more to be revealed next year.
Hopefully this summary is a useful point to pause and reflect.
