Documents by archive

This page provides details of the documents held at archives, split into Crew Lists and Shipping Registers. We have not attempted to list other maritime documents which an archive may hold.

The sources of this information are:

For crew lists, we list the ports for which the archive holds documents, and the years covered. For more detail, where possible we link to the archive's catalogue, or TNA's Discovery. However, several archives have catalogues driven by software called DServe, which is best described as 'user hostile'. It needs considerable patience to use, is often slow, or just locks up. In due course, where we can do so we aim to copy data onto this database so that it can be better accessed.

For shipping registers, we list the ports for which the archive holds documents and the volumes which they hold. For some documents at one or two archives, we have been able to make an index by folio (page). For the port of Rochester volumes we provide links to the archive's images of the register. For the Isle of Man documents, we are able to provide a transcript of each folio, including the names of owners, masters and builders. These names of individuals can be found by using the 'People named in shipping registers' search page.
