I'm a new member and maybe just haven't figured out how to best use this (incredible) site. I'm writing a manuscript for a children's book. I have found multiple sources that sort of interpret the radio calls to/from the Titanic. However, I need to find a reliable source stating the actual messages. (Interpretations are welcome as long as the original messages are clearly stated.) Would anyone be able to direct me to a source with actual messages? A few choices to examine would be great!

Thanks so much.

Hi, Welcome Aboard!
I don't know much about her wireless, but this is pretty accurate.
Parks Stephenson, a famous Titanic historian, has a FaceBook page he communicates with us Titaniacs, if you make a post there he'll see it. He replies 75% of the time
Good Luck :)

If you really want to get in deep, you can see many actual documents from the various ships and land stations involved. They have been archived on the Wayback Machine.
