        Attached are a photo of Charles Rice (who is basically my step-great-grandfather) and an article about his surprise reappearance. William Magoolaghan (b.1901) noted in the article above was my grandfather, and while he was a wonderful, sweet natured person, his father (William) was a piece of work who abandoned my great grandmother (Mary Ann Magoolaghan) and ended up fighting for both the British and the Americans in WWI before relocating to New York in 1918 and becoming a US citizen & remarryin...

        I am not one to beat a dead horse, as I have nothing to gain by either convincing people ornot convincing people, rather there was a light indicator on board,but merely out of research and respect, I feel it is meaningful toall to present all data. Since my article was published, I have found two other articles that state such devices was aboard. The first being 'The American Marine Engineer', Vol. 5, January, 1910, which states: Each steamer will be divided into upward of 30 steel compartmen...

        "Plus the 5 needed to man the boat (that is far to few for a rescue effort) in each boat that is 30 men"... Where does number "5" come from? I'm trying to find a regulation document stating the number of crewmen required/allowed on each lifeboat in case of a wreck. Can't find anything in Mersey's report nor in the Merchant Shipment act of 1894. Does anyone have the answer? Thanks a lot!

        In 1968 I lived at Richmond Slipway, I was 6 years old. My mum was employed to look after the old Mrs Lightollert who by then was quite frail. Mrs Rose and Colonel Lighteroller with their two daughters where people I saw from time to time, but I only remember meeting Miranda briefly in the summer when she returned from school. While I was there the Old Mrs Lightoller told me about her husband Lieutenant Lightoller who was on the Titanic and how he survived all the way to shore but died of pneum...

        I am somewhat interested in this post, I have a journal that I am doing some research into on behalf of the owner who bought it from an auction. The book has an entry about Fanny. I know it is this Fanny as it has reference to a Dick, sometimes used for the name Richard who sailed to New York. It also says Fanny sailed on the Titanic and later says Fanny died March 1st / 20. What interests me is this journal isn't in any particular chronological order, it has several entries or lists about fur...

        My name is Kathy Dawn Garner(Abbott). I was born in Florida. I'm trying to find information if I'm related to Rhoda(Rosa) Abbott. I've always been obsessed with Titantic and a fear of drowning. I'm 50 years old and I'm curios if I was related to her husband and her. Just found out that any Abbotts were on Titantic. If anyone knows anything about this please contact me in Massillon Ohio. Very grateful. Thanks and God Bless🙏🏻👼🏻

        I've noticed that this profile of Sir Arthur Rostron claims that he was the Captain of the Mauretania until July 1928 but I own a "Continuous Certificate of Discharge" booklet of an electrician who worked on board the Berengaria from 1926-1931 and it shows definitive proof that Sir Arthur Rostron was the Captain of the Berengaria on July 31, 1926. (See photo) I've seen this error regarding when Captain Rostron took the helm of the Berengaria all over the Internet (including Wikipedia). My evide...

        According to this passage, he has had a rough lifetime. He deserved better for the struggles he went through as a young child.

        He was only 7m old when he boarded the ship. And according to the info given, he made it off the ship safely but never heard of his father again. If he made it off the ship, then he could possibly still be alive. If still alive, then he is very near his death year. Either way he lived a long life.
