Lloyds Shipping Registers

This morning I am reviewing a presentation by Ken Nisbet, on the theme of researching WW1, that was organised by the Anglo-Scots Society (part of the MLFHS) at the Manchester Central Library recently. Whilst verifying all the links for the article I came across this great site for finding scanned volumes of the Lloyds Shipping Registers and I’ve added it to the Links Map page.

Liverpool Workhouse Registers

A few days ago I went with David and his cousin and her mother to Liverpool Central Library, mostly to look for David’s Joynt records; each one of us had some research questions to try and answer whilst we were there. The filmed Workhouse Registers for 1859-60 were easy to find and we had good reason to think that the elusive ancestor might have spent a night or two, at least, in the workhouse, but he wasn’t to be found amongst any of the records. Other people were found, though, including a Joynt that we hadn’t seen before. Not finding someone in a record set does close one line of enquiry, that is a result of sorts. We continue the search.
