Interesting...I see that there is a passenger list dating from the Lusitania's last voyage. Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't passenger lists from Lucy's final voyage rarer than a Titanic passenger list. I believe three exist from Titanic's first class, and a few from her second class. However, I have only heard of one surviving from the Lusitania which was mailed by one of her passengers before setting sail.
