Genealogies


These genealogies of the leading families of different tribes of Balochistan have been excerpted from official publications of the British colonial period. Most of these genealogies can be found in the reports, gazetteers, and memoranda on the respective regions of colonial Balochistan. These reports include O.T. Duke's Report on the Biluch and Pathan Tribes of ThalChotiali District, Todd's A Historical Sketch of Jhalawan, Ross's Memorandum on Mekran, and Tate's The Country and Family of Ahmedzai Khans of Kalat. Only a small selection of all the genealogies available with Balochistan Archives has been digitized and made available here. For more detailed information about the genealogies of particular tribes and families, please visit our Rare Books and Manuscripts Library.
