Hello all

7th October 2008, 12:42
I am a new member, do not know anything about the fishing trade or ships, but am researching my husbands family tree. Many of them were fishermen out of Hull. So I am hoping to gain information on all types of things connecting to the Bailey family, the Smith family and the Nicholson family.

Welcome aboard from just inland and a bit north of you, Eise.
I'm sure that if the information is availabel the crew will let you know where to find it.
Meanwhile explore the ship and enjoy the voyage.

Thank you, all of you. I will obviously be interested in Hull North of England's fishermen. I did not realise you were so wide spread. it seems it is a large ocean we all sail on.
I am hoping to find proof of fishermen who may have died at sea, owned their own trawlers or the like. Also anyone know of the names of the large ships that returned POW back to Hull shores in 1945/6.
