Ships BMD records added to the Genealogist.co.uk

From S&N Genealogy's Twitter and Facebook pages:

TheGenealogist.co.uk has now added Births, Marriages and Deaths onboard ships to their Non-Conformist and Non-Parochial Records. Compiled from ships' official logs of births, deaths and marriages of passengers at sea by the Registrar General of Shipping and Seamen (RGSS) and its predecessor, the records range from 1854 to 1908 and include over 150,000 individuals, complete with images and full transcript.

The records are:

BT 158 - Registers compiled from ships' official logs of births, deaths and marriages of passengers at sea (1854-1908)

BT 159 - Registers of deaths at sea of British nationals (1875-1888)

BT 160 – Registers of births at sea of British nationals (1875-1891)

(With thanks to Nigel Bayley and team)
