Hi there,

I am researching my family tree and find that I have 3 Master Mariners (John Elliott, George Smith Elliott and John Shepherd) - all sailing from South Shields at various times from 1850(ish) through 1911.

On various vessels such as the Coronilla and the Eglatine, the Greenwood and the "Charles Finnatry" (or something like that - the Lloyds list microfiche was a bit scruffy.

Just wanted to introduce myself and say "hello"
