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 .

Unless we gather historical data that points otherwise, other Dashora Communities such as Dashora Mahajans are not included in our genealogy data-base.
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 .
