Researching a Merchant Seaman. — 2 Comments

  1. I really enjoyed this blog, Annalies. My 2G grandfather, George FILES, started his maritime career in the Royal Navy but then seemed to become a Merchant seaman. He came to Hobart and worked on whaling ships in the mid-1800s. You have provided some additional resources for me to check, if not relating to George, at least to the sort of life on the seas he might have led.

  2. Hi Ross, and thank you for your feedback. I am so glad you enjoyed reading this and hope the additional resources provide you with a few more pieces to your genealogical puzzle 🙂 Kind regards, Annalies
