I am an unerwater archaeologist in Chile, please meet us at:

I have plenty of information about the wreckage of Rossdhu in Gatico cove. The wreck was also uncovered some years ago by some divers.

I would be curious as well to know you Jack, as a descendant of her master. how interesting..

Rodney, lists of consular agents in chile may be found within the Memories of the chilean Home Ministry. Of course, there are some volumes of the Home Ministry arhives at the National Archives of Chile that should contain this information as well.

You can both contact me at

best regards

My Great Grandfather
My great grandfather Frederick McNeil born approx 1869 served on the SS Arica and left the ship in Valaparaiso in 1893, he then married my great Grandmother Ascension del Carmen Munoz. They had several children and all left Valapariaso in April 1908 to arrive in Liverpool England. Where they then resided.
Would the British Consulate in Valparaiso hold any information on Frederick and Ascension, Visa's, registrations of Births and Marriages, emmigration records etc and the birth of their children between 1893 and 1908. If not do you have any suggestions where I could obtain this information? Many thanks.

Herbert Nelson - Chief Mechanical Engineer / Mining Engineer - Valparaiso
Between about May 1911 and Dec 1912, my grandfather Herbert Nelson served as 3rd Engineer aboard ships of the Pacific Steam Navigation Co, steaming between ports including Valparaiso, Callao, Coquimbo.

Between Dec 1912 and May 1914 he was employed in mining as a Chief Mechanical Engineer, starting and ending his term in Valparaiso. We have no other info.

Any advice about how to find any more information about his employment in mining in Chile would be very gratefully received.

Marriage ceremony at the British Consulate
My Great-grandmother's twin sister, Agnes Grant, left Liverpool by ship with a George Turnbull. They were married at the British Consulate in Valparaiso on the 11th October, 1873. When George Turnbull died, Agnes went to Australia to be close to her twin sister. Are there any records about the marriage, or George's death or profession? Some say he was an engineer. Thank you.

William Eastwood Banker
My great uncle William Archibald Beaconsfield Eastwood emigrated to Valparaiso, Antofagusta in the mid 1900's as a Bank clerk. How do I find out what happened to him?

Thomas Jenkins - British Consul
I was always told that one of my relatives Thomas Jenkins born about 1861 was the British Consulate in Valparaiso. Is there a way that I can find out if this is true?

British Births & Marriages in Valparaiso in the 19th Century
Would the British Consulate in Valparaiso hold registrations of Births and Marriages of British citizens who were living in the city between 1860 and 1870? If not, have you any suggestions where I could obtain this information? Many thanks.

Chilean Civil War 1891
The ship "Imperial' was commandeered during the Chilean Civil War of 1891 and the chief officer was forced to stay on board to serve the ship as captain under Commander Garin. He was only able to get away with the Consul's help (possibly in April of that year). Where could I get more information about this?
