Bilaspur is also in Chhattisgar and there is a Bataapara SHAKTI WARD, BHATAPARA, DISTT. RAIPUR, 493118 (CHHATISGARH)

One of the names that you mentioned popped up as a village near Mandi but I cannot now find a reference to it.

Mira, I found that Bilaspur in Chattisgar also but I wanted to lean a bit over towards HP, the reason is the person mention he came from a place near Nepal. I may have to ask some more questions as his face had more Nepalese/Oriental looks, thanks a lot for the information though.

Hi Aneesh, I haven't travelled to Bilaspur as yet but maybe some day soon I will get the time and money to see India. I will give you a call later or on the weekend to chat about this elusive village. Thanks.

This what you're looking for?

(above the last 'A' of BHATAPARA)

Spellings were different in the past, and this is an old map.

Bhatapara is halfway between Raipur and Bilaspur in Chhatisgarh.

Borsi is about 6 kms east of Bhatapara.

Thanks Steven,that solved part of an old story. In a couple of years I will travel to this region to have a look for relatives living in this area. By the way where did you find this old map, I may have to look elswhere in India for other old relatives from 1845's. Thanks again and take care.

The above map comes from these maps, they are MASSIVE maps, and very detailed, though it would be very difficult just using these maps alone.

The map above was taken from the Raipur map from the above collection.

If you have a bit of info about a place, say a district, the following site can be useful as a place to start.

http://www.mapsofindia.com/states/

If you click on each individual state you'll get a list of maps for that state, the 'districts' maps can be useful and lead to maps of each individual district, not great maps though.
