The National Archives holds a wide range of maritime records dating from the 1850s onwards. Whether you are searching for a deserter or a lighthouse keeper, want to find about more about the service of your seafaring ancestor or the ships they sailed on, these records hold much of interest to the family historian. Some of this material has recently been digitised so find out more about how to access it online.
