Family History and Service Records

Over the past 20 years, a number of attempts have been made to create a historical record of lighthouse keepers. Recently, new efforts have been made to draw together the work of a number of researchers into a single on-line database. Information is available by contacting the editor, Ken Trethewey, who would be pleased to receive new information that can be added to the database.
