Maritime Monday: Ships of the East India Company

This fairly new site: Ships of the East India Company "...aims to provide information on all the ships, voyages and seafarers of the East India Company's mercantile services."  It covers years starting in 1600, and aims to create databases about:
  • ships (construction details, owners, service history, ultimate fate)
  • seafarers (sea service, ships served on, personal details, biographies)
  • voyages (dates of voyages, crew, ports of call, wrecks, captured, missing)
Definitely one to keep an eye on!

Maritime Monday is a Geneabloggers daily theme where you can post anything to do with the sea: ancestors who were sailors, shipwrights, fishermen, or coastguards; images, records and links.
