Maritime Records – Ships from My Family History.

This page has been updated and now includes a list of 163 ships and more than 160 mariners associated with my family history, although the list is still not complete.

One of my favourite research interests in Genealogy is my connections to Maritime History, I have plenty of Mariners, Shipwrights, Coastguards, Lighterman and Explorers in my family tree so keeping an index of these connections on my Blog is a good way to share this information, and to make research for myself far easier.

My family connects to some of the most famous Ships to have ever sailed, something I am very proud off.
