Titanic Passenger List

Postby wldspirit » 15 Apr 2007, 13:53

One week only!!

The names, ages and professions of passengers listed on the Titanic 's fateful journey have gone online for the first time, 95 years after the luxury ocean liner sank.

Dozens of pages featuring the original handwritten passenger list are available, revealing the cabin class of passengers.

The list, which is available for free for one week at findmypast.com, could help genealogists trace family members. Previously, the list could only be seen at the National Archives in Kew, southwest London.

I am a huge Titanic buff, thanks for the link!

Very interesting, it takes a bit to access these images (plugins, registration etc), but worth the effort! They don't look exactly like Manifest pages, well at least what we are used to looking at via The Ellis Island site.

Also, in case anyone is interested, there is a site called Encyclopedia Titanica, which has a complete complied list of all those on board, even the lucky few who only stayed aboard only from Southampton to Cherbourg and Queensland.

It is an amazing resource, which is free and frequented regularly by the premier experts on this subject and as well descendants and relatives of those who traveled on Titanic.

Each person has a bio, with photographs (when available) family, Birth/death/marriage dates, and all sorts of interesting info. The most accurate and current information available.
