Tracing Bachubai Mistry’s family

I  am hoping to get some advice.

My grandmother, Bachubai Mistry, came from a Parsi family from Mumbai. However, she fell in love with and married my grandfather, a non-Parsi. This was in the 1940s and she was disowned by her family and cut off from the community. She always considered herself Parsi and continued to do her prayers etc although she wasn’t allowed in the agiary, She always talked very fondly of her roots and she had a deep sense of regret for having been cut off from the Parsi community. She passed away about 10 years ago. She had a brother by the name of Minocher (Minoo) Mistry, who she talked about. I do not know if Minoo Mistry is still alive and if he had any family (she did know that he was married).

We would very much like to reestablish contact with that side of our family and would be grateful if you could advise the best way of finding that part of our family. I know that the Parsi community has very good records. Would really appreciate if you could point us in the right direction.

Many thanks,
