The BSWF Voyage and Crew Databases
The Voyage and Crew databases are the heart of the British Southern Whale Fishery website. The Voyage database which is primarily the work of A G E Jones documents the events of nearly 2550 voyages to the south of Britain in over 900 different vessels. The Crew database which is primarily the work of Dale Chatwin contains nearly 14,000 entries for men who served in the British Southern Whale Fishery between 1775 and 1859.
