Description

This guide follows the Guide to the Records of Merseyside Maritime Museum Volume I (Vol 8 of Research in Maritime History) and covers the remaining collections hosted at the Merseyside Maritime Museum relating to a wide variety of subjects:- merchants; shipbuilding; slavery; emigration; maritime families; maritime charities; seafarers; the Titantic; and the Lusitania. This guide follows the same format as the previous:- a brief historical introduction; a list of main items; an archival code; a datespan; a quantity of records; and a reference to any key printed sources held in the museum’s Reading Room. The subjects are broken down into ten thematic chapters, for ease of navigation.
