View Full Version : Tracing John Thomas - Merchant Seaman Crimea

09-11-2014, 12:41 AM
Hi All, Chasing information on John Thomas who was born c1825 - 1830 in Gibraltar. His father I think was British and was stationed in Gibraltar at the time his mother apparently is of Spanish origin. The story goes that his ship was sunk and he was the sole survivor. I am trying to find information of any crew lists of ships sunk in Crimea. He also was an apprentice at age 16 I am thinking in the Merchant Navy. Also if anyone can help with trying to find birth records for children born in Gibraltar might also assist me in finding other siblings of John Thomas. Thanks for any help anyone can offer. Would love to find my overseas relatives.
