List of deceased seamen on FIBIS

The Families in British India Society (www.new.fibis.org) has added a list of European Seamen who were "dead, discharged or run" since the 31st December 1764 (IOR Ref: O/5/31 and LDS Film: 2104568) to its database, as transcribed by Sylvia Murphy.

The collection is accessible athttp://search.fibis.org/frontis/bin/aps_browse_sources.php?mode=browse_dataset&id=985&s_id=862

(With thanks to Valmay Young @fibiswebmaster on Twitter)

UPDATE: Valmay has been in touch to say that she has also added 3 more datasets of Uncovenanted Madras Civil Servants - see site for details.
