More about Elaine MacGregor

Experience

Elaine is an experienced traveller who combines a wide knowledge of Genealogy with an infectious enthusiasm for India, and broad experience of organising and managing specialist tours to the Indian sub-continent, as well as to Africa, Australia and the USA.

Her consuming interest in Genealogy began, as it does with so many people, in researching the lives of her own ancestors whose association with India reaches back into the 18th Century. Appreciating that one is never too old learn, she is currently studying for a Diploma in Genealogy with The Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies at Canterbury, having already gained Certificates in Life and Local History at the University of Sussex.

Families in British India Society

For over a decade Elaine was a trustee of FIBIS, and in no small way helped it to become the prominent specialist organisation that it is today. Indeed it was with the understanding of this charity that she organised the highly successful “Indian Mutiny“ visit to India in 2007.

East Sussex Record Office

As a regular volunteer at ESRO, she assists visitors with their own research and also helps out as a conservator, cleaning and preserving original ancient documents.

Past Life

In a past life Elaine has written several best-selling books on practical patisserie and sugar craft and presented such techniques on videos for broadcasting. It was while engaged in this activity that she conducted six overseas tours for groups of cake decorators. She is still called upon to act as a specialist judge at Hotelympia for the Cookery and Food Association as well as other Cake Craft exhibitions, although these days she no longer has enough time for teaching in this area.
