    The ancient babylonians used fingerprints in clay to record transactions.  The chinese also used fingerprints of ink on paper for similar reasons.  The first use of fingerprinting in criminal cases occurred in the 1800s when Sir William Herschel began using fingerprinting to prevent fraud in India.  Sir Francis Galton was a eugenicist who took the technology further, by developing a classification system for fingerprints in 1892.
