5.0 out of 5 stars Tyne Merchant Sailing Dictionary 24 July 2008
By Brian Fornear - Published on Amazon.com
If you have ancestors who were in the merchant marine and sailed out of the Newcastle area, the Dictionary of Tyne Sailing Ships should prove to be an invaluable resource. It is a work of extraordinary effort by Rickard E. Keyes that took the author many years to complete. Mr. Keyes' objective was "...to record the names, builders, owners, masters, career details and fates of sailing vessels of over 50 registered tons." And he has done that admirably. The dictionary comes complete with invaluable indexes for the ships, ship name changes, owners and shareholders, masters, shipbuilding centers & shipbuilders and a general index.

The Dictionary of Tyne Sailing Ships is truly a merchant marine researcher's treasure.
