Is there a category or anything about ships? If you hear about a particular ships name - is there a way to look it up?

Whether Wikitree or an outside source of some kind?

Thx

There are many ship categories, falling under different projects. There are categories for military ships, immigrant ships, etc. See:https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Ships

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Ships is the overall category on Wikitree where any Ships that have been categorised on Wikitree can be found in the various subcategories. 

To find if a specific Ship go to https://wikitree.sdms.si/default.htm?report=srch5&Query=Ships and enter the Ship's name in the category search area and click Find Categories

Great question Brett and you have some good answers here already.  But don't forget Google (or any internet search engine).  The internet can be your friend - if you dig deep enough.  Try variations of your search and dig deep, go back at least 5 pages on the search results - that's where I find some of my best nuggets.
