Seafarers on camera: 3pm (GMT) 31 March
An introduction to maritime photographs, expert webinar with Simon Wills.
The UK’s extensive maritime heritage means that seafaring ancestors are common and they were often photographed. Yet these photos may tell you more than you realise. They may give you clues to understand your ancestor's life, role, status, employer, qualifications and so much else. They were also sometimes taken to mark a special career milestone, and details of uniforms may help you to date an image. How do you tell a Royal Navy person from a merchant navy employee? Or a seaman from an officer?
