Findmypast.co.uk publishes new maritime BMD records

39d2f29c-a21e-4e8a-b99f-77ff4843a888

Findmypast.co.uk, in association with The National Archives, has published two new sets of records, which include information about the passengers and crew aboard Titanic’s ill-fated maiden voyage. The Maritime birth, marriage and death records and White Star Line Officers' books are both now available.

In ‘maritime births, marriages and deaths’ you can search for your ancestors in full colour scans of the original documents recording births, marriages and deaths at sea. In addition to these, births, marriages and deaths associated with seafaring occupations are recorded – not just events that took place at sea. The Maritime death records include a list of the Titanic crew members and passengers who died at sea. The collection includes 38,990 birth records covering the years 1867-1960, 37,538 marriage records covering the years 1854-1972, and 949,890 death records covering the years 1794-1964.

In ‘White Star Line Officers' books’ you can view full colour scans of the original service records of White Star Line officers and commanders, including all the officers on board Titanic.

The collection comprises 1,042 records covering the years 1868-1934. The information for each officer includes date and place of birth, address, details of his apprenticeship, the names and dates of the ships served upon and the date he left the company.
