Did you know we could help you with your fishing family research?

We have a Boat Database compiled by Steve Peak, which is a comprehensive guide to boats and their owners and crew.

We have been donated comprehensive family research documents for Gallop, White, Adams and Breeds families, but we may have information or photos on any fishing family relative. 

At the History House they have street directories to find where your relatives lived.
