TNA podcast: Tracing ancestors in Nelson's Navy

A shortish presentation by Bruno Pappalardo from 20 October 2009, it is an overview of the essential finding aids and documents held by The National Archives which can be used to trace ancestors who served in Nelson's Navy. Emphasizes the need to different approaches for officers and ratings, and information available in TNA's catalogue.

Solid information, if not particularly entertaining.
