Photographs of your seafaring ancestors may tell you more about their lives than you realize, and Simon Wills’s helpful and practical guide shows you how to identify and interpret the evidence caught on camera. Since maritime roles have been so vital to Britain’s prosperity and military might, they are among the commonest professions depicted in photographs of our ancestors, and his handbook is the ideal introduction to them.Maybe your ancestor was a seaman in the Royal Navy, a ship’s captain, a steward on an ocean liner, or an officer in the naval reserves? This book shows you how to spot photographic clues to an individual’s career. Whether your ancestor served in the merchant navy or the Royal Navy or in another seagoing role such as a fisherman, a lifeboatman, or even a ship’s passenger, Simon Wills’s book will be your guide.
