And, if one collection wasn’t enough…the U.S., Seamen Protection Certificates, 1792-1868 also went Live today!

The Seamen Protection Certificates were issued for the protection of the sailors so their identity and nationality wouldn’t be questioned.  You can read more about the certificates here.

Thank you to the 394 contributors who keyed and arbitrated these records so there are now over 77,000 names to search!

I wish they’d had these Certificates when my father served in WWII. It would have been interesting reading!
