Martha's Vineyard Historical Society
The Martha's Vineyard Historical Society Museum maintains a specialized collection of shipping related books and artifacts. Using this collection, the group examined the role of shipping in the Vineyard Sound in the Nineteenth Century. The group created a database to improve access to the museum's collection by presenting photographs and allowing searching of two boarding logs. Statistical searches of the boarding logs show a change from general maritime shipping in the Vineyard Sound to industrial shipping in the period from 1840 to 1875.
