History resource[edit]

I'm a bit busy at the moment, but if anyone wants to footnote some history, there's a good British resource here for the area: . MatthewVanitas (talk) 05:45, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

The Gandapurs are a Pashtun tribe inhabiting the environs of Dera Ismail Khan, a major commercial center the west bank of the Indus River, in the southern region of the North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan, near the frontier with South Waziristan. The Gandapurs reside principally in the small town of Kulachi on the bank of River Gomal, a tributary of River Indus and trace their origin to Afghanistan. They settled in Dera Ismail Khan area in 17th Century A.D. A part of the tribe lives in Sur Kalay in Ghazni Province of Afghanistan. Tigerkhan007 (talk) 13:19, 18 August 2013 (UTC)
