Tracing Your Seafaring Ancestors

Photographs of your seafaring ancestors may tell you more about their lives than you realize, and Simon Willss helpful and practical guide shows you how to identify and interpret the evidence caught on camera.

This book shows you how to spot photographic clues to an individuals career. Whether your ancestor served in the merchant navy or the Royal Navy or in another seagoing role such as a fisherman, a lifeboatman, or even a ships passenger, Simon Willss book will be your guide.
