Dear Kristen:

I am not aware of any site on the Net containing the kind of information
you are looking for.  Furthermore, I have researched my own library and
I can't find any reference to families travelling with whalers. As far
as I know whaling ships sailed only with their crews on board (always
men).

Best wishes,
