  1. Thanks John for the shout out for tonight’s presentation on Lloyd’s of London. Millions of the records have been digitized and have come online in the past 2 years. I will talk about the records, their history and show how to use the records with a great case study. Anyone interested in global shipping records should join me. Its free to watch for a week if you are not a Legacy Family Tree Webinar subscriber. You will need to be a subscriber to get the detailed 6 page handout.
