I wonder if any reader could help me, or point me in the right direction.
I am currently researching my ancestors, in particular, my great grandmother who served on various steamships as a Bath Attendant/Stewardess. I have managed to find her logbook which lists the ships Margaret Mary Bowan served. (Margaret Mary Bowan - B145319 Board of Trade - Merchant Marine Service). Copy of the cruise dates and years are attached in my x2 grandmothers log book. The ships were as follows;
1. Lancastria – 1936 -1937,
2. Scythia – 1938,
3. Aurania – 1937,
4. Franconia – 1938.
Margaret’s date of birth is 6 August 1894. Born in Co Mayo, she lived in Liverpool and Greater Manchester. I have tried the National Archives, find my past and Ancestry.com even though some of these websites lists my grandmother as passenger, what I am looking for is an actual picture of Great Grandmother. I am right in thinking there would be crew list photos from this period for the ships above?
Any help appreciated, I know this is an impossible task but worth a try. Thanking you in advance.
