I don't think that we do Stuart. Thanks for pointing them out.   :D  The links didn't work, but I googled them and found them that way.

Propriome, shall I put them in the Geog Help here please? http://forum.oldweather.org/index.php?topic=3637.msg63490#msg63490

Sorry Joan.
You are indeed correct they are only the titles. Opps.

Hi Stuart!
Thanks for the new references :)

Joan, of course you're welcome to add them to any thread you see fit!
Since those are covering a worldwide area probably the best place is the one you've already pointed out, unless we want to add them to all reference threads.

At the rate Michael's finding places every day we'll be lucky to keep it under 30,000!   ;D :o ;D

(There are so many that Michael's pm-ing them to avoid crushing the usual channels!  8) )

With the irreplaceable help of Michael's daily pms we're actually at 14,146 placenames & aliases.
I'm getting so used to his pms i got a little worried, on Sept 7, when i found none was sent ::)

New ones are getting more and more rare, as we've been recording every single piece of rock on some routes ;D

Lately I've been retracking a few RN ships from naval-history, in order to get some more places from the "uncharted" areas of the Geog Help Board (New Zealand, Persian Gulf, East and West Africa, India, Kola Peninsula, Iceland). I think we could be near the 15,000 mark next November...

I just found a few more in the Beluga whaler log - and they are proving quite tricksy...another load from the Russian side of the Behring Sea. The whalers all seem to hang out near each other so it surprises me that there are any new names cropping up.  :)

I've been re-assigned other duties, but today we fly back to Victoria, and tomorrow I'll be back on the job!
