The FIBIS FIbiwiki has many pages about various towns in India during the
British rule. The name of the page will generally be the spelling used in
the Imperial Gazetteer of India
for the town.
The spelling of these places may vary quite a bit, and sometimes it is hard
to determine whether it is the same town. The Fibiwiki pages will mention
spelling variations , if known.
As an example the Fibiwiki page Toungoo (which is in Burma)
Modern name Taungoo
Other variants: Toungoo, Tonngoo, Tongo, Tounghoo, Toung-Ngoo, Taung-ngu
The purpose of this email is to ask you to take note of alternative spelling
you may come across in you research and to add it to the Fibiwiki, for the
information of others. This may be done directly by you- there are some
links at the top of the Fibiwiki Main Page
, about how to do this- or if
you send me an email I will do it.
