Topic:
anyone who is researching their seafaring ancestors.
The list welcomes discussions about merchant ships, the world's Navies, and the men who made their lives at sea.

If your seafaring ancestor worked on the smallest fishing smack, or the largest man o'war... if he was a Marine, a Customs Officer, a Coastguard or followed any other profession involving ships or the sea, then this list is for you!
