        Myth: Titanic reversed her engines and made the collision with the iceberg more likely by slowing the ship down and reducing her maneuverability. This incorrect information is dying a slow death and many books still print it as absolute fact. However, careful research and analysis by the sources listed below (and others, I am sure) have essentially proved this did not happen. It is generally accepted that it would have taken about 2 minutes for an engine room crew, who were not at their maneuv...

        Documents on Frederick Wormald clearly show that he was 36 years of age (http://www.henry-aldridge.co.uk/catalogues/2012/ss241112/page12.html). Cannot be Henry Frederick Charles Wormald who changed his first name to Frederick.

        The Rockets where WHITE which are not for distress but rather to illuminate if there is a person overboard for example. Orange rockets are distress rockets, but the ones seen that night where white, and maybe that's why the captain did nothing?

        Thank you - much of the information was gathered through letters that were published in the newspapers of the times written by your gr.grandfather's friend and business partner Walter Bigelow.

        Just.. Argh. If you had read the INTRO of this whole article you would already see that Jack Dawson has NEVER existed nor did he die on the RMS Titanic..

        I know of one lady who was given an ensign (the plaque) from one of the lifeboats. Her name was Margaret Devaney. She was responsible for saving this particular lifeboat and the ship steward gave it to her knowing what she had done for the ship and the souls onboard it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Devaney http://www.independent.ie/regionals/sligochampion/news/titanic-tale-27589249.html http://home.online.nl/john.vanderree/alive.htm

        Hi Donald, I know my father had a step brother who's real name was I think Linton but went by the name of Jimmy. He took the name Yearsley but was not his birth name. He was residing in New Jersey the last I heard.
