A blog post asked researchers to provide the names of vessels, ED, etc when found. I am searching the Coast Guard cutters and will certainly note the information. However, where and to whom do I post it? I have culled nearly all the Coast Guard ships and units from the 1940 Census. The 1940 and 1950 Census results are to be used in a study I have undertaken. Is there a way to search by "crews of vessels" within the P82 forms? As some have noted the imagery of the census forms can be challenging to read. Those with problems I am putting in Photoshop to enhance the imagery. I am not actually collecting names but rather numbers. Thanks.
William: Thanks for your interest in this subject! You can add the information as comments to this blog post: 1950 Census: Vessel Crews. There is no global search for crews of vessels - other than perhaps limiting your searches to Naval bases and Coast Guard facilities. The image quality of the microfilm certainly does vary.
