Our Nicholson Whaling Collection is a tremendous resource, and the online access to digital copies makes using it easier. But perhaps even more helpful than images for researchers are transcriptions of whaling logs.
Thanks to Andrea Kirkpatrick, transcriptions of the accounts of three voyages of the ship Margaret are now available online. Place the images beside the transcriptions and it becomes immediately apparent just how much work is involved.
