Author and genealogist Keith Gregson is kindly offering a free e-book, From Shetland to Keel Square, as part of Scottish Family History month at Family Tree.
The book is study of British maritime and island life during the 19th and 20th centuries and examines a microcosm of maritime life in an English port (Sunderland) over a period of time covering ship masters, builders, owners and brokers.
It also gives a detailed insight into the island (Shetland) lives of a group of fishermen, crofters and knitters – families which gave up their sons to lives in the mainland maritime trade.
