I came across the Partition Museum just as the news was broadcasting the news of the name given to the newly born baby of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The little boy is to be called Louis Arthur Charles, which is a name that I had suspected.
The connection to Partition is through Lord Louis Mountbatten who was the last Viceroy to India – see the connection?
The museum is reasonably new, established in 2016 and whilst it does not necessarily have much online for visitors, the historical event that this museum represents does provide food for thought on the people who lived a lifetime in India and contributed to the Country it became before partition in 1947.
For those of you who have been reading this blog for a while will know that I established an Orlando in India a while ago and that has been added to the long (and getting longer by the minute) list of things that I need to followup.

In addition to this, I have been a member of the Families in British India Society (FIBIS) since the early days and their website is a great asset to the genealogical community.
