Our history section will contain stories of events that are relevant to primarily the fishing and related industries. Some of the articles will be about the lives lost and the circumstances surrounding the sad events. We believe many people living locally, as well as others further afield researching family trees, are not fully aware of the full extent of the hardship and loss their ancestors suffered. We aim to provide the information using newspaper archives and books etc, and all sources will be listed at the end of each article.
