    Default Phoenix Lines

    My grandfather's brother was a mariner in the early 1900's. He seems to have spent most of his working life with the Phoenix Line ending up as a Captain. So far I have been unable to learn anything about the this Line. When I google it I get information about a US trucking company.

    I would appreciate any information.

    Thanks

    Keith

    It may be worth contacting the Special Collections department of Southampton City Libraries. They have an extensive maritime collection with some indexes. Follow the links from https://www.southampton.gov.uk/leisur...es/information

    The web address has been scrambled in the above reply. The last section should be leisure/libraries/information

    Lynda... it only looks that way. It always does that, and it is intentional, try it, and you will see that it works as it should

    Default American Poenix lines

    Tried a search and came up with
    American Phoenix Lines
    Steamboat Landing
    76 Shore Rd
    Glen Cove, New York
    Tel: 516-744-2353

    However this seems to only operate one ship called the Thomas Jefferson that apparently ran Long Island gold coast cruises in 1800's now seemingly used for cruise weddings (and other "functions?). Maybe a bigger company late 1800's early 1900's?

    good luck

    This might give you a lead .... Devon Record Office archives

    I got this from https://www.a2a.org.uk/default.asp
    an excellent resource ... millions of links to archives nationwide. Google doesn't index these archives. If the above isn't yours try some of the other archives listed or alter the search criteria.
