I haven't found any returns for _ships at sea_ but did find in FIFE, in
the miscellaneous section benevolent asylums. There should be an
introduction somewhere on the fiche, maybe on the very first fiche.
Presume that you are looking at the fiche at your LDS? Do they not know
how to find where different returns would be listed?
Hope you have success
Happy Christmas and good luck researching in 1998
