Shipping registers for the port of Workington held at Whitehaven Archive and Local Studies Centre

This is a list of the shipping registers held by an archive or for a particular port.

The data is from the archives' catalogues, mainly online.

For some registers, we are able to provide a basic index for a register, by folio (page). In these cases, there will be a link to the index on the right hand side of the table. In some cases, the index includes a limited transcript of the folio, showing details of the vessel's registration, and in some cases details of the closure of the register.

For the Isle of Man registers, on the right of the index page is a link to a much more detailed transcript of the folio, including transactions and all owners. However, we can't cover every detail and it will still be worth referring to the original document.

For the registers for Rochester, images are available online and we provide a link to them for each entry (This is not functional at present, but we will restore this as soon as possible).

For the register for Canadian ports, many image sets are available online via the Canadiana site. Where possible, we have provided a direct link to the image for the first page of the register. For some registers, the images are continued on the next reel. The reels are numbered consecutively, so changing the reel number and page number in the URL will take you to the next page. For example, a URL that includes c1234/567 will be continued on c1235/1.

For the registers of Australian ports, a full index is available, with links to images of each folio on the NAA site.
