CLIP contains 80,000 entries. The names of every crew member who sailed on a Manx-registered ship between 1863 and 1913 have been entered on a database. In many cases, a sailor's career over 50 years can be traced along with his family's maritime associations over many generations. Although databases are being created in ports in the UK, most are based on a small sample of names.
This major project was supported by the Foundation for many years and is now complete.
