    Seeking records about William Tamlin

    Jim White Newbie

      My maternal great grandfather, William Tamlin, said he was born 1830 in England.  He may have become a merchant marine or in the Merchant Navy in his late teens.  He ends up in Dubuque, Iowa by the mid 1850s.  But how did he get there?  Why did he go there?  More importantly where are his records of immigration, ship manifests, declaration of intention to be a US Citizen?  The names of his parents and any siblings (if any) are unknown to me.  Did he go to Canada or Newfoundland first then to the USA? Lots of questions and no answers. I have been looking for his roots for over ten years.  Can you help me?
