India, Hindu Pilgrimage Records, 1194-2015
Hindu pilgrimage records kept by Pandits in India. The records can be for people and families making pilgrimages from numerous places throughout India. These records are created and updated when family members pass on. The records in the registers are arranged by "caste" and contain native place, names of family members, the last occasion on which a family member came to this place of pilgrimage and made an entry in the register, the ceremony performed at the time and offering made to the priest. No women are mentioned unless their deaths are referred to indirectly. The registers represented here are arranged by the location of the Pandit, the Pandit's name, and then by the volume numbers or year ranges associated with the registers.
