I have been a member of Ancestry for well over a decade and I am a U.S. based historian. I write distinct books about 19th century shipwrecks and most importantly who were the victims and what happened to the survivors. Although I have a full time job, I spend my free time researching and connecting the past to the present day descendants. Many have shared their family history with me which has allowed them to connect to others who have a nexus to the tragedy. Examples of ships I have published about and the date of the tragedy: The Lady of the Lake (1833), The Powhattan (1854), The Hibernia (1833), The William Nelson (1865), The John Minturn (1846), The City of Glasgow (1854).
I can also help you with researching passenger lists and free newspaper sources to track down the shipwreck. These are things I learned when I started researching and writing a while back.
If you have a shipwreck story that you think I would be interested in please send me an email at ThomasClark1234@gmail.com

All the Best. Tom Clark
