Could anyone provide clues as how I could trace my roots back to Bihar, India from where my great grandfather emigrated to Mauritius around 1847?
My great grandfather named "Fakun" emigrated from Bihar, India to Mauritius travelling by ship Sultany bearing no. 23 reaching Mauritius November 1847 from port of origin Calcutta. In Mauritius, the immigration services allocated him an ID no. 4989. He died in 1888. I would appreciate anyone providing me clues how to trace back my roots back to Bihar given that I cannot find anymore information on my great grandfather in Mauritius.
