Find out where the records are for any ancestors that worked on the sea or along the coastline. England has about 2,748 miles of coastline with no place more than 75 miles from the sea. No surprise then that it is a proud seafaring nation. Many families have connections to employment in all sorts of roles: merchant seamen in trade or fishing; government workers, such as Customs and Excise, the Coastguard service and Ridings Officers. Alec Tritton discusses the surviving records available and where to find them.
