If you have British mariners in your ancestry the latest episode of The Family History Show, episode five, will be of interest.
Hosts Nick Barrett and Laura Berry speak with Eleanor Gowne, Head of Archive and Library at the Caird Library, National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, who shows examples and explains some of the records in the collection.
They also have a collection of company records from P&O, and, of personal interest to me, the New Zealand Shipping Company.
At this time you can hardly cover this topic without mention of the Titanic, and the last segment delivers with a display of artifacts from the NMM's Titanic collection.
You can watch either the whole show or select a segment or segments. Start here.
Notice the high quality of the video.
