My interest in maritime documents and the history of America’s shipping industry led me to compile a bibliography on the subject. It’s mostly focused on the northeastern US but also includes international resources. I included both print sources and online databases. Family Search has a limited, but interesting collection of maritime documents digitized (see page 4).

As a preliminary announcement, I am giving a webinar on records of the custom house and other maritime documents through the Massachusetts Society of Genealogists’ webinar series in 2016 (Date TBD). I look forward to my first year in genealogy education and becoming more involved in local societies.
