FYI and HELP, my Father John Karlot Carlson (Karlsen) who was born in Nordstrand, Norway in December 1901 and at the age of 16 he started sailing on the North Atlantic Ocean as a Seaman during WW-1 ending up on the Great Lakes in the early 1920's as a wheelsman on the SEEANDBEE ship # 211085 until she was layed up in the fall of 1939.

Also my Dad meet my mother on the SEEANDBEE during a summer cruise in 1928, during the SEEANDBEE's lay-ups he sailed on the STR. GOODTIME ship # 126546 out of Cleveland, Ohio and the STR. HYDRO ship # 211524 as per his Continuous Discharge Book number 163489, he became Naturalzed June 20, 1941 at the age of 39. My Dad died in May 1964 at the early age of 63, I'm the only living child from their marriage.

Any information you can provide me about the SEEANDBEE's crew members names, dates/places, books and Archival Collections etc. would help me find persons (families) who sailed on the SEEANDBEE with my father.

Best regards,

John Carlson POB. 340996 Columbus, Ohio 43234
