Re: Logbooks for British and American Ships in Persian Gulf: 19th Century

Hi Isacar,
If you're interested in Royal Navy ships, the way to do it would be first to look at NMM Kew ADM 8, Disposition lists, which tell you where Royal Navy ships are deployed- sometimes by station, sometimes by specific destinations. Then you can call up individual logs in another series-either at Kew, Caird or MUN

Isacar,

If you have any use for warship logs, you can find them for RN and USN ships in the National Archives of both the UK and US. These links/research guides give detail:

Logbooks for British and American Ships in Persian Gulf: 19th Century

Dear All,

My name is Isacar Bolaños, and I am a doctoral candidate at Ohio State University, where I study the environmental history of the Middle East.

I am writing to ask whether anyone on H-Martime knows where I might be able to find logbooks for British and American merchant ships that travelled to the Persian Gulf (as far up as Basra, if possible) during the 19th century. I am also wondering if anyone knows of any books or articles that might mention the names of such merchant ships, since knowing the names may help me in finding specific logbooks, too.
