Tracing Your Merchant Navy Ancestors: A Guide for Family Historians by Simon Wills

£ 12.99
   + P&P
This practical handbook will be essential reading and reference for anyone who is keen to discover for themselves the secrets of our maritime past and of the crewmembers and ships that were part of it.

What was a merchant seaman's life like in the past, what experiences would he have had, what were the ships like that he sailed in, and what risks did he run? Was he shipwrecked, rewarded for bravery, or punished? And how can you find out about an ancestor who was a member of the long British maritime tradition? Simon Wills's concise and informative historical guide takes the reader and researcher through the fascinating story of Britain's merchant service, and he shows you how to trace individual men and women and gain an insight into their lives.

In a series of short, information-packed chapters he explains the expansion of Britain's global maritime trade and the fleets of merchant ships that sustained it in peace and war. He describes the lives, duties and tribulations of the generations of crews who sailed in these ships, whether as ordinary seamen or as officers, stewards, engineers and a myriad of other roles. And he identifies the websites you can explore, the archives, records and books you can read, and the places you can visit in order to gain an understanding of what your seagoing ancestor did and the world he knew.

*Find your ancestors who worked on passenger or cargo ships using websites, archives, and records
*Concise account of the history of Britain's Merchant Navy
*Describes the lives of merchant seamen across the generations and helps you investigate the ships they served on

ABSTRACTS OF SOMERSET WILLS

£ 12.50
   + P&P
In 1942, Somerset and Devon lost one of the most important research sources for local and family historians, when a German bomb destroyed the Exeter Probate Office, and all of the wills that it contained. This being the case collections of transcripts and extracts of wills are so important to those of us with connections to these counties. One of the most important sources for Somerset is the collection of abstracts that was made by the Reverend Frederick Brown at the end of the 19th century, these were published in six volumes between 1887 and 1890 by Frederick Crisp. Only one hundred and fifty sets were ever produced and their rarity is reflected in the price of those that do occasionally come up for sale. This CD contains digitised version of all six volumes, that is fully searchable and will prove invaluable to anyone studying the local or their family history in Somerset.
