GATJ - They Came on This Ship
The article They Came on This Ship was just added to Genealogy According to Jeff. It was originally published in the Everton's Genealogical Helper.
Ships have a birth, life, and death of their own. Ship names were occasionally used over again on a
newer vessel. Ships were often renamed when they were
sold to a new owner. Finding the history and genealogy of a ship might be
necessary in order to find a photograph of the correct ship and to be able to say
for certain that "They Came on This Ship."
