Sagarbhai Barot in Rajkot to Digitize Soni History
Bharatbhai Narshi Mitha Pattni & Pranbhai Chhaganlal Arjan Dhanak with Sagarbhai Barot
Pattni Connection Advisory Panel Chairman Bharatbhai Narshi Mitha and Pranbhai
Dhanak, Webmaster had an opportunity to go and meet Sagarbhai during their
visit to Rajkot. It was absolutely fascinating to go through family records.
Barot family is like our community genealogists. They have been maintaining our
Soni family history for the past many generations. Sagarbhai Barot who lives in
Rajkot is our current Barot who maintains numerous handwritten books on all
Parajiya Soni families.
However since Sagarbhai Barot’s sons are not willing to carry on maintaining
the records, we agreed to explore the possiblity of digitizing all records and
put them on the Pattni Connection.
Meeting with Bharatbhai Rathod to digitise Barot's Books
Kumudben and Pranbhai welcomed by Bharatbhai Rathod in Rajkot
A prominent personality of our community,
Bharatbhai Rathod who is a co-admin of the Matrimonial website, welcomed
Pranbhai Dhanak during his visit to Rajkot.
There are three co-admins - Bharatbhai
Rathod (Rajkot), Arvindbhai Dhakan (UAE) and Pranbhai Dhanak (UK) who host
Paraj Vansh Matrimonial website.
Apart from discussing the progress made
on the Matrimonial website, we discussed about Sagarkumar Barot’s books. Bharatbhai
will explore the possibility
of finding a person who can sit regularly with
Sagarbhai to digitize the records on a computer.
It is going to be a monumental
task that will take several years but where there is a will, there will always
be a way!
