It contains in excess of 160 full colour photographs of all the remaining graves at the Armenian Church Dhaka (Dacca, previously in Bengal but now in Bangladesh). In addition, I have included over 25 individual family tree charts that relate directly to those Armenians buried in Dhaka. These charts have been drawn up from my own research of the Armenian community’s existence there between the 18th and 20th centuries. I have also uniquely cross-referenced the grave inscriptions with the original Armenian Church death register entries and where possible, I have also included important factual information from those registers. All transcriptions and register entries that are written in Armenian have been expertly translated into English, to further help the Armenian family history researchers around the world who may have a South East Asia genealogy connection


About the Author

Liz Chater
lizchater Southampton, UK
Liz is an enthusiastic family history researcher specialising in Armenian families and individuals in India and the Far East. However, recently she has turned her attention to family history research in Symondsburys and Eype in Dorset. Having photographed all of the standing memorials in the two villages she has now produced three more books to add to her Blurb collection. In addition to the full photographs and transcriptions of the graves, she has cross-referenced each memorial with the relevant parish church burial register entry to try and offer as complete a transcription as possible in the hope that these books will help other Dorset family history researchers.

This beautifully presented book is the culmination of much painstaking research by Liz Chater. As the seminal collection of Armenian tombstones and their inscriptions, it is a vital addition to the study of Armenians in the Indian sub continent. Nadia Wright

For sure the above mentioned boek must be a muster piece for the historia\ns who are interested in the Armenian history, I think that these graves belong to the Armenian merchants who forceibly moved to Julfa
(Iran) from Armenia on the orders of Shah Abbas after invading Armenia
in 1604 many family members of them scatterd also in Europe doing
business, I wish I could efford it.
