3,300+ Irish in Ancestry's US Seamen's Collection

Thanks to Claire Santry for the following.

"Ancestry's new US Applications for Seaman's Protection Certificates, 1916-1940, contains more than 315,203 records of seamen issued with certificates at US ocean and Great Lakes posts by customs officials. Nearly 3,350 of the records relate to Irish born men. You will need a subscription, or do this search through your local library.

One of the best things I found when using this database, was a photo of the individual!! Happy Searching!!
