Final Resting Place


The Canadace, an 1818 Boston-built ship, whose life includes trading in the Pacific, arctic whaling, and a quiet stint in the mud under San Fransciso, will soon become the centerpiece of the San Francisco History Museum when it opens in 2008 at the Old Mint in downtown San Francisco.

The full, and interesting story can be found in the San Francisco Chronicle.

We were happy to be able to assist James Delgado with information that helped identify Candace using our online databases (New London crew lists and Connecticut ship database) and a not-quite-ready-for-primetime database of shipping disasters published in the Boston Shipping List.
