BOATING GENEALOGY SITES The following links are to sites which incorporate boat related genealogy information. They are in no particular order.
Cyndi's List of Canals, Rivers & Waterways Genealogy Sites *
Mersyside Maritime Museum *
The Barge Men * website devoted to Thames barge and lightermen, watermen, docks and boat builders - this has now expanded to include Norfolk & Suffolk wherry and barge men.
Unfortunately rootsweb.com mailing lists will become defunct from 2-3-2020 (as rootsweb.com has become part of ancestry.com) but the website says the messages will still be searchable but archived on the site. This archiving process is, as yet, incomplete so all archives are not currently visible (Saturday, February 15, 2020)
