This is a work sheet linked to the Eyemouth Disaster 1881 - Berwickshire, Scotland project.

The profiles linked to this project are fishermen registered in the 1881 Census returns for Eyemouth, Berwickshire. The Census was taken on the 3rd April. The trees here are not connected to larger trees of people linked to the main project, but hopefully in time will be merged into them.

Only the fishermen in the household are linked. Please consult the list of profiles linked to the project for links and further details about them.

The profiles and trees have been built directly from the Census images. Thanks to Thad Thomas for making these available.
