TALWAR SURNAME ORIGIN
Arun Talwar
- Close
 
 Dear Friends,
My Grandfather name was Late Ishwar Dass Talwar, my father name was Late Roshan Lal Talwar. My father including himself were three brothers and one sister. After partition, our families moved from Lahore ,Montgomery,Gujranwala of erstwhile India to different parts of India. Mostly our relations, got settled in present India at Delhi, New Delhi, Agra, Jhansi, Jabalpur, Indore, Bombay, Chandigarh to mention few cities/towns.

Today as I am writing my father / mother, his brothers / wifes, father only sister & her husband are all gone. Right from my tender age, to now am 62 YRS,I had always had a desire to meet, or chat with any family having Talwar as there surname. Over the years, my desire to know our roots, what we call family tree was there that I finally embarked on the journey of making our family tree.

At this stage it is in its infancy, but would like to exchange ideas, with all  families who  carry our  same surname to build ancestor family tree.

I also know, lot will say they are busy, or just not interested, there is nothing to loose, if we know  our Talwar Dynasty / its origin etc. 

Today, our surname fills up pages after Patel's in Indian Telephone directories and many are  settled around the globe.

I would like thank every one, who writes / contributes / helps us to see we achieve in making our own genealogy. Later would like to add, all Khatri names as time progresses.

Lot of people, will say they have records at Haridwar, (holy place in India, where we all go, to immerse ashes of our near and dear ones to river Ganga) where our ancestors names are recorded with Pandas. But do not know how these pandas of today take you for a ride. My own experience has not been very encouraging. Especially when births / deaths registers in modern society, is still a long dream in our mother land. 

Pandas / priests, need to use, computer age to get information recorded/updated/matched etc, to get easy approach to one family. Yes some times people say, its good to see your forefathers handwriting / signatures, bring us to spiritual / emotional feelings etc. I do not disagree, but even that can be done, along with tonnes of records dating back to many centuries.

Science has modernised every field, but still we need to go long way to connect our forefathers, when it goes to our mother land.

I will appreciate, all those from Male side, young or old or Female side young or old and are connected to Talwar family, please do write me, to include in the genealogy of TALWAR'S. This will help me, not to say help you to know your own near and dear ancestors. Please do leave your email ID, contact details, details about your family etc.

God bless, 

A Talwar

Dear Mr Vijay Talwar,

Many thanks for letting me know more about your family. I would add, as this web site, we visit not daily, unless some notes are directed to me on my email ID, by heritage.com. So would appreciate if U could keep responding on email, as and when U are happy to do so, to get my prompt attention.

One great thing I noticed, that my Grand Father was also at Lahore Station and he worked as Station master, and there is one great story behind it, which I will narate, or possibly see some of my Grand pa stories on my blogs.

I have copied all my conversation today on email also to U.

One of my blogs there is story of Train guard at Lahore Railway Station:

Dear Mr Vijay Talwar,

Many thanks for your email, and lettimg me know, names of your ancestors, parents, grand parents and so on. You may like to add up your monther side also, this was not in practice in earlier times, but good idea to include them. It makes tree more relavent, when I send U my web site.

As I am writing to you, its been great last week, when I happen to chat another Talwar family settled in Sweden on skype. Letter writing to around the world, and one such great reply came from Mrs V Talwar, married to German family and is settled in USA, with lot of details of her family and that there forfathers had been in Raja Ranjit Singh army. And that story is there with me also, as my parents told me. Yesterday I chatted with family carrying our surname (21 Yrs old ) who have settled in Kabul, and that they are  3 brothers. I could not get more details, as he was at his work place, for them (Friday is holiday), compared to all we have Sunday off.

I would appreciate, if you could take a bit of time at your leisure, to update the Generation Family Tree (Attached) as many names you could add/ or remember with any memories you may have for your parents/grand parents, or stories told to you. Any dates if U do not remember, place year of birth etc etc. Further for sister Tara (maiden name, which family she came) Talwar. The tree, can be updated to present generation/your grand children etc.

I would love to talk to you sooner as per your busy schedule on any week ends, once I have with me updated form.

Please also let me know, where you are settled  and give me your contact details etc, along with email ID for us to correspond. This will also help me to send you my Genealogy Talwar web site, although still in infancy.

Regards,
