I am searching to find the names of ships my great-grandfather may have sailed. Following those results, I'll search for photos I might be able to find of them.
The census of 1900 shows him as a sailor in Rockland. The 1910 census shows him as a master. I began my diligent search with the MHS. However, the only source they had lists all the ships sailing in and out of US ports in alphabetical order. I called the Rockland Library to see if they had archives of the Rockland Gazette in order to obtain the maritime ledgers and cross-reference with the volumes at MHS. They do but these are on microfilm. Not living nearby for a quick run there, I wanted to first exhaust online sources, I have since ordered a book entitled, MAINE BEAM, 2009 from the Rockland Library. The reference librarian thinks that I may find something about him in this book.
I just joined this network and noticed this group with this specific interest. So, I thought I'd cast a line and see if anyone who is familiar with this time period may have come across this name or might have further suggestions. Many thanks!
