War of 1812: Privateers

If you think your ancestor “acted” during the War of 1812 as a privateer, you want to check this website out -- War of 1812: Privateers.

Click on Great Britain, United States or Canada to see lists of the Ships and Commanders.  Under Great Britain there are also .pdf documents on Owners and Crew and if you click on ADM26 you will find a list of remittances made to relatives for those who served in the Royal Navy and is NOT limited to the War of 1812.

We are always interested to hear if you have found someone you’ve been researching!
