    I am a maritime historian and ethnographer who has been searching for this story for a long time. I am interested in getting more information from first hand sources. Could you help? I queried -http://valvainila.com/anna.htm- but have had no come-back. I can give you photographs of the ships of this type, if you are interested. Please reply!

    Greetings from the USA.

    My name is Donald MacCuish. My grandfather skippered the Florence C. Robinson from Crete to Gloucester, MA. I seek additional information on the ship before she was renamed, the voyage itself, and members of the crew. Ideally, I`d very much like to chat with descendants of the crew members. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

    Sincerely,

    Don MacCuish

    2. Is there is second in the series?
