TNA podcast: Tracing merchant seamen, 1857-1918

Janet Dempsey, a records specialist at TNA, gave this short presentation on 12 April 2012 which deals with a period when there were no individual British merchant seaman records. Crew lists are distributed between TNA, the National Maritime Museum, the Memorial University of Newfoundland and various smaller sites.  There are also medal records for the WW2 period.

Crew Lists at MUN will be my Great Moments talk at the December BIFHSGO meeting.
Fantastic projects to digitize these records!
