Dashora Family Names
It is believed that the ancestors of the Dashora Brahmin Community originally  consisted  of people with 12 gotras namely Koravya, Bhargava, Warahi, Dhannanjay, Mandavya, Gotam, Koshalya, Kondinya,  Kapistal, Garg, and Kashyap.  Each of the gotras have their own last name sets  and unique praying hierarchy.  Dashoras of Rajasthan origin usually use "Dashora" as their last name but other Dashoras use many different last names based on their gotra, profession of ancestors, or for a variety of other historical reasons.


Many people have contributed to populate this database. Also we wish to acknowledge books by Shri Nandlal and Hari Shankar Dashora which have been very helpful  in being able to include Rajasthan Origin Dashora Families in our database.  We are also thankful to the publishers of Dashora Directories  for Rajasthan and for Indore region .

We are not actively researching the genealogical data for the non Dashora ancestry for persons who have now become part of our  data-base  as a result of their marriage into the Dashora Community. However if any of the Dashora  descendents wish to include their non-Dashora ancestry  to our data-base - we encourage them to do so and we will be delighted  to include the  information submitted to us and  connect them to the Extended Dashora Family .
