An indispensable work for anyone tracing sea-faring family during the 1800s. Includes launch, dates and ports of 'call, and fate of some of the finest ships ever seen in the seas of the world. Used with gratitude to develop <a href="">The Maritime Heritage Project</a>. Without newspapers of old and such reference books, the Project would have been impossible to develop during the past 18 years.
