We live in London Ontario Canada . My grandmother ,Marion Lee ,R R Lee 's sister , came to Montreal around 1910 or so . If anyone can be of any help in this matter ,it would be appreciated .

My father was the nephew of Samuel Herman. We have relatives in England who have done a very elaborate Herman family history. I was wondering if any of the descendants of Samuel Herman use this site? Thanks

My wife Barbara's grandmother was Miss Emily Borie Ryerson, first class passenger.

Arthur Larned Ryerson, Emily's father, who died on the Titanic, has about 42 living descendants.

Hi everyone from Canada.

My name is Vaughan Lightowler. I'm a transplanted Brit, having been brought here by my parents in the late 50's, from W Yorkshire. It's always been rumoured that C.H. Lightoller, 2nd Officer and senior surviving officer, is a distant relative.

Some day, we'll find out, I'm sure.

It's quite entertaining reading these threads.
Thanks!
Vaughan

My greatgrandfather is James Keegan.He was the leading fireman on Titanic's sea trials and he was listed as one of the victims of the disaster.
This fact is untrue and it has been recorded in the United States senate and elsewhere.
In the Merseyside Maritime Museum Liverpool they have a cabinet dedicated to him and they even have commemorative items relating to the crew who were lost with the titanic and he was at the time still considered lost by the white star line...strange but true, but he missed the maiden voyage for some reason unknown to the whole family. Peple didn't talk much in the old days about things so he took it to his grave.So I was surprised to say the least that the encyclopedia titanica website also has him as a victim of the disaster.Not true fortunately for me and all his descendants.I have a picture of him and it is available to view if you e mail me dcbmckenna@hotmail.com

My great grandfather was Henry James Beauchamp, 2nd Class Passenger who perished. I'm new to this site and looking forward to getting some more information to add to what I have. Unfortunately, some of the records from that era are incorrect such as my Grt. G/Father's age was listed as 28 but was in fact 42. I did a fair amount of research many years ago but took a hiatus .. now I'm back and looking forward to getting my teeth into this again! I will be posting more information about my Grt. Grandfather under the Passenger Research soon.

My great-great uncle, a young shoemaker from Sweden named Johan Hagglund, had purchased a ticket to travel on the Titanic, but some men he befriended in a hotel stole it from him. His family didn't know he wasn't on the Titanic and when it sunk they all thought he had lost his life. Just imagine their relief when he wrote a letter saying he was safe and sound! I always wonder who the thief was, or if they even used the ticket to board the Titanic.

My great-uncle was David Livshin (travelling as Abraham Harmer). He was a third-class passenger. The family believes he died on one of the lifeboats (possibly Collapsible B) and was buried from the Carpathia. David was, apparently, sharing a cabin with Harry Corn, who died in the sinking. If anyone has any info on either David or Harry Corn - or, for that matter, on the "real" Abraham Harmer - I'd love to find out more!
