Forum: General Family History Queries

Although it is best to use specific forums for various topics, this one is for general topics that don't otherwise have a home.

However, there are certain things which are not allowed and this includes breaching copyright or licence - At...

  2. Finding a mariner's death before 1823

    What records would be available for me to find a death registration for a mariner before 1823 as I don't know the location of his death. I do have a copy of a will dated 1803 where he names his wife as executor but does that mean he died or created the will in 1803?
