Help Researching Royal Navy Officers & Ratings

Postby Mark » May 31st, 2011, 2:29 pm

The following are brief guides to researching Royal Navy and Royal Marines records for commissioned officers, warrant officers and ratings including those who served in the Napoleonic period. These records are comprehensive and varied, though sometimes complicated. These guides will help you to find out if the information you are looking for exists and, if it does, where to find it or more information about it.

Very nice. I found a couple of maybe erstwhile relatives on my fathers side in there, the home Counties match as well as the names anyway. Seems that Naval Service didn't agree with at least a couple.
