FIBIS are pleased to announce the publication of the notices of arrivals
and departures to and from Bombay for the period 1816 to 1852 taken from
the Bombay Calendar. This adds to the run for Madras from 1810-1860.
The new Bombay arrivals and departures can be searched here
Or the entire collection can be searched at http://search.fibis.org
As a matter of note, this new publication now means that we have over
1/2 million people in the FIBIS databases, a great testament to all the
FIBIS volunteers (over 60 at last count) who spend a lot of time
transcribing these records.

PS There is no 1821 and no 1839. Copies of the Bombay Calendar for these
years are not in the BL and do not appear in any other libraries that we
are is aware of. If anyone knows of any copies of these then we would
be grateful if they could let us know.
