Title: HMS Firefly Crew Lists
Post by: MikeH1 on 10 August 2017 02:32:49 PM
My first post.  I am hoping someone out there can help me with my research.
Would there be a crew list available, circa 1856, for HMS Firefly?  I have a relation George Woods who, according to his marriage certificates,  was a seaman onboard this ship.
His father is also names on the certificate as a seaman in the Royal Navy and if possible I would like to know more about him and his service.

Just get a copy of his Service Record: this will show the ships served on etc
