A number of Mauritians have traced their family ancestries. It is a duty and a natural desire that lurks in many, if not most of us. Some have been lucky in that they have been able to trace names and dates in civil registers and archives. Some, perhaps a minority, have gone into interesting details and have drawn up elaborate family trees. But unfortunately very few, among Indo-Mauritians, have published their research formally or informally. Basdeo Bissoondoyal, in his ‘Life in Greater India’ (1984) has been among the first to write on the subject of his ancestors. Indeed he was possibly the first Mauritian writer to point out the term ‘Greater India’ and its meaning, although he did not make use of the current word ‘diaspora’. for more click here
