Hi, thank you for accepting my membership.
My grandfather and some of his brothers were merchant mariners out of King's Lynn, Norfolk, England and Stockton-on-Tees, etc., following in the footsteps of other men in the family. My father said his father was away from home once for 7 years and went to Australia (not sure if that was the same trip.) His brother sailed on the Thomas Wood, out of Lynn, likely one of several. Anyway, that was between about 1885 and 1930. So, family history is my goal for being here but I also crossed the Atlantic 3 x - twice on the Queen Elizabeth - the Big One! and once on the SS United States. Memories!
