Morwyr Cymru - Welsh Mariners

Morwyr Cymru - Welsh Mariners: "The core of the site is a database of (currently) over 21,000 Welsh Merchant Mariners - masters, mates and engineers. A more detailed explanation of who is on the index and who is not is available here

As 2005 is the bicentenary year of the battle of Trafalgar the October 2005 update of our website now includes two separate searchable databases of Welsh mariners. These are the existing database of merchant seamen active from 1800 to 1945 and a new database of men active in the Royal Navy from 1795 to 1815, which includes Welshmen at the battle of Trafalgar. More on the RN database."
