Armed Forces / Merchant Navy records?
« on: Friday 01 September 17 16:15 BST (UK)  »

I have an ancestor who was a captain in the merchant navy during both world wars. He captained a ship called the Diplomat which was torpedoed and sunk.

Does anyone know how I would access any records regarding the merchant navy? I would love to find more details about his service.

Many thanks.

Monaghan / Meginns of Castleblayney, Co.Monaghan

Looking for Meginn family of Castleblayney in 18th century. I know my ancestor was born in Castleblayney 1797 and was a painter, moved to Liverpool before 1820, where he died 1862. Wondering if I can find out when he moved or trace further back. Not sure where to start - first of my ancestors to be born in Ireland! Thanks.

Armed Forces / Anyone help identify this uniform?
« on: Friday 01 September 17 11:31 BST (UK)  »

I have a photo of one of my ancestors and I'd love to know what kind of uniform he is wearing, his rank or anything else that can be gleaned. Any ideas and information gratefully received. His dates are 1812-1870 and he looks to be an older man by the time of the photo. His occupation was a chainmaker, but clearly he served in some capacity.

Many thanks for any help!
