US Navy Muster Rolls

US Navy Muster Rolls

In the latter part of the 19th century, every US Navy ship had a register listing every sailor of the crew. Many crewmen on the American ships were of foreign origin; up to a third were British or Irish! Researching sailors is often challenging; these previously unindexed registers will no doubt break brick walls on both sides of the Atlantic.
