"American Merchant Navy"
« on: Wednesday 20 September 06 16:56 BST (UK) »
Hi there  ;D

Does anyone know where (or if) there are any records held for American Merchant Seamen between 1910-1927

Although my great grandfather was British he became an American Citizen.

Many thanks

Thanks Nutkin

I did come across this address too but I think the "Coast Guard" bit threw me!  :-[


Right, better get my typing head on and do a letter.


Thanks again
