Do you have canal boat ancestors?
‘Spellweaver’ is a website devoted to tracing ancestors who were boaters or those who worked on the canals. The creator of the website says: “One of the things I’ve found useful in tracing my canal boat ancestors is newspaper articles, which can be pretty informative, giving details such as who the individual worked for, where they were living, and so forth, the kind of information which wasn’t really readily available elsewhere. Hence this site”. For more information, go to www.spellweaver-online.co.uk
