Tracing Births, Deaths and Marriages at Sea

f you are struggling to find the birth, death or even marriage of one of your ancestors, perhaps the event took place at sea. This book will help guide you through the myth and fact of what records there are to help you discover the truth. It addresses what records were, or should have been, created recording births, deaths and marriages, aboard British Merchant ships (including colonial ones), passenger ships to the UK, and Royal Navy ships. Pitfalls and special cases such as events in territorial waters, and those related to army personnel are also examined. for more click here
