Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - BEST WEBSITES -

www.pbenyon.plus.com/ Naval.html If you want to find out what life was like for Royal Navy sailors, this is an ex­cel­lent mis­cel­lany to dip into. It looks ba­sic, but con­tains a wide range of tran­scribed ma­te­rial, lots of it drawn from Ad­mi­ralty cir­cu­lars, mem­o­randa and printed navy lists. The web­site is pre­sented as a sim­ple list of sub­jects, from ‘Health in the RN’, drawn from Par­lia­men­tary Re­ports in the 1860s, to a full list of pay for rat­ings in 1844 – from the ship’s cook to the cap­tain’s coxswain. There’s also an in­dex to 19th­cen­tury ves­sels and their move­ments at www.pbenyon. plus.com/18-1900/ In­dex.html, com­piled from navy lists, di­rec­to­ries, news­pa­pers and books.
