Is anyone knowledgeable about the Merchant Navy - either in Sweden, Estonia or Latvia? I've googled but can't find actual records. I know it's a long shot, Im looking for a naval captain in the 1920's. I think he was from Latvia/Lithuania/Estonia and travelled back and forth to Sweden with the Navy, may have been dealing in fish/transporting fish.

Are you looking for Aleksandr Krilovs? (I see you have Krilovs in your researching list).

If so, there are a lot of entries on Google, under "Captain Krilovs". They go back several years, and might be interesting.

Yes I am, but I cant see these entries on google? My Aleksander died in 1928 or 1929. x
