Ships and Seafarers of Atlantic Canada

Memorial University of Newfoundland

Price: CDN$49.95

CD Description
We are delighted to announce the publication of Ships and Seafarers of Atlantic Canada - a fully searchable CD containing data on the vessels, captains and crews of Atlantic Canada, 1787-1936.

This CD contains information on the shipping industry of Atlantic Canada, derived from two British record series, structured as three interactive databases that allow the user to search, sort and query the data.

The first database is compiled from the Certificates of Registry for 10 major ports of Atlantic Canada: Miramichi, Richibucto and Saint John in New Brunswick; Halifax, Sydney, Pictou, Windsor and Yarmouth in Nova Scotia; Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island; and St. John's, Newfoundland, from 1787 to 1936 (outside dates). It contains information on the vessels registered at each port and on their owners. Shipping registers for the port of Bermuda are also included on the database.

The second database is compiled from the crew agreements of vessels registered in the ports of Saint John, New Brunswick; Yarmouth, Windsor and Halifax, Nova Scotia for the period 1863-1914. This file contains information on the masters and seafarers who crewed the vessels, their ports of call and voyages. In total the file contains information on 182,000 seafarers and 20,000 masters of Atlantic Canadian vessels.

A third database contains a one per cent sample of crew agreements from non-Canadian (British) vessels which was compiled for comparative purposes. The data is arranged in the same format as the file described above and contains 85,000 records of individual seamen and 19,000 records of masters.

These databases were originally created for the Atlantic Canada Shipping Project, a major research project undertaken by maritime historians at Memorial University over a six year period from 1976 to 1982.
