Category: Sailings By Decade

Categories: Ships

This is a high level category. Please do not add individual profiles. Add profiles to the narrowest category possible. See How to Categorize.
Container category

The categories contained within this category are designed to help you find details about a ship if you have found your ancestors on a passenger list. The categories are divided up by decade, and then alphabetically.

Profiles for passengers should be linked to sailings, rather than directly to the ship. If you find an entry for the ship your ancestors were on, but the sailing date doesn't match, then create a new category for that sailing. (Most ships will have dozens, or even hundreds, of sailings over the course of their working lives.)

Profiles for ship's officers or crew should be linked to the ship itself. If you are looking for a ship by the year it was launched, see Ships By Decade Of Launch.
