Thank you Steven. With over 240 Titanic family members (direct descendants, nieces/nephews and cousins) endorsing our project with the hope of finding their loved ones, we aim to identify all for which we can obtain viable DNA.

Any updates on this Bill ?

All the best with the project. Even if only half a dozen get identified it would still be worthwhile.

I don't know if is coincident or psychic. Only yesterday I had a long chat with Trevor Baxter from BTS Who has spent a lot of time into investigating the where about of Titanic crew and passengers grave sides in the UK. Some are quite badly neglected where will see if can be repaired or just clean up. He ask me to take a visit the Brookwood Cemetery in Surrey about 20 miles away. Where captain Smith wife Eleanor and daughter Melville are buried, Also Sir Cosmo Duff Gordon. I will report back on my findings in the near future with photos.
Do I have the neve to ask if a DNA test has be done!

Thank you Seumas, for joining with us. If you use Facebook, join our group "Project NAME THEM ALL" and become a part of the support family. Meet descendants who share their support. This is a project where, in the wrong hands, would be a nightmare. That is why I WANT to talk with people, to let them know who I am and what I believe - that I feel these victims are MY family (having researched them for 45 years).
All three cemeteries have our initial proposal, and were receptive to it. No one said yes or no, and we look forward to the next round of conversations where we can, as I've done here, answer questions, address concerns, and see how we can help them. If all works well, we may can identify some of the 42. We greatly appreciate the cemeteries talking with us, and hearing our proposal so far.
anything new?
