A Invite To Ships Of The World In War-1792-1815

I would like to invite you to my new web site called ( Civil War Days & Those Surnames.) but don't let the title fool you it's not just about the Civil war, it's much more. This site not only deals with the Civil War but all the American Wars, up to the Spanish-American war and the surnames that go with it be it American or British or any other nation.

I'm here to tell you about my new page I just posted it's called ( Ships of the World-1792-1815 ) It has a listing of over nine hundred ships American, British and other nations. I invite you to come and look it over. If you are looking for a ship this is the site for you it also deals with the men that were impressed from these ships, so if you are looking into your family and need some imformation on a ship this site maybe a help to you. Below you well see some of the information that can be provided to you. I hope to hear from soon.

Note. Those of you who are just interrested in the Genealogy part of the family and don't think this site is for you, how wrong could you be just as the Ware family was and how surprise they were when they found out their g-g-g-grandfather had a daughter and son by a Mulatto slave.

Then there's the Strachhan, Strahan, Strawhan family and how they found out they had a family mumber put in a orphanage by his father and later bounded himself to learn to be a waterman (Seamen) and was to join British navy only later to desert from His Majesty ship the Melampus to join the U. S. Navy. All ths information was found by looking up a ship name, so you see this site has something for ever one, come and see.
