Topic : Punjabi Genealogy

I live in the Omaha metro area, I moved here from Australia in 2002. I have been researching my genealogy, I have an Indian great-grandfather, his name was Abas Khan. He left India in the late 1800s to move to Australia. On his marriage certificate it gives his place of birth as Goorgoosti, Punjab, India. I am thinking that the registrar wrote the place down as a transliteration, because I cannot find Goorgoosti on any old maps of Punjab. I am aware that Punjab was split into two when Pakistan formed, therefore, my ggf may have lived in what is modern day Pakistan. My great-grandparents named their farm in Australia. Is/was that a Punjabi custom to name your property? Could Goorgoosti be a transliteration of a property name? Any help anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated. If this information helps his fathers name was Serb Khan, and his mothers was Begun Ghee. He was born about 1867-1869. Thank you.

That should read "Sarb Khan" and "Begum Ghee"
