Port of London Records
« on: Monday 02 February 04 23:02 GMT (UK) »
Would anyone know where I might find records for ships entering and leaving the Port of London ???

I tried the Kew site and The National Archives Online Catalogue but couldn't find them.

Any assistance greatly appreciated. :D

As a slight update on the above query,  the ship I am looking for is the Betitcodiac,  which I think would have been Norwegian.  On the 1900 Norwegian Census I have a possible G-Grandfather listed as being on this ship bound for London.

All of my internet searches have been fruitless.  And my postings on the Norway Rootsweb on this ship have not helped.  Does anyone know of a resource where one may find Norwegian ships?

Thanks in anticipation,  :D

Hi Kazza
         Sometime ago I was doing some reseach into Merchant shipping in and around the time of the world wars and came across this site which started of as a family site but expanded to cover all aspects of Norweigan shipping, might be worth exploring.

Peter,

WOW
Only had a quick glance so far but it looks great.  The best Norwegian site I have seen so far. I can see I will be spending hours there,  or looking at the links.

Thanks,
Kazza.
