It also has births abroad. However  be cautious as many of these are transcribed from transcriptions and not to be relied on. Double check information.

ANCESTRY. COM is a pay to join site, very useful, but I thinks it is expensive since many of the records can be found with a little effort.
If you have no other recourse the local Library has free access but with only a ½ hour free,  you need to go well prepared.

 IMMIGRATION

Apart from Ellis Island in USA which records immigrant entries from January 1, 1892, until November 12, 1954 the main entry facility for immigrants entering the United States; the facility replaced the state-run

 If they went TO INDIA  there is FIBIS Families in British India Society a very comprehensive and useful site.

If they went to  CHINA – This seems to have been mainly missionaries. I usually Google the place and add missionary and see what pops out. There  are  various denominational websites with information and  quite a bit on line but there doesn’t seem to be one website that covers all.
