If a photo of this unfortunate child appeared in People Magazine, you can bet that a copyright still applies. As such, it would be inappropriate to post the photo here without the copyright holder's permission. Having said that much, if somebody has that photo, one could always scan it and send it in an e-mail to Hilda.
I just looked up the pic that is listed in the issue of People that the article appears in. In the caption, it states that the pic was taken prior to Eino's birth. When I look real closely at the pic it appears that Maria is pregnant, so it may be Eino that she is carrying, but he is not one of the children present in the photo.
I am a Finnish journalist and I am trying to find more material on the family Panula, mother Maria and her five sons, youngest of which was Eino, Titanic's "unknown child. They all died in Titanic. Does anyone know anything about them? Have you read any interesting books/interviews/newspaper stories in which this family has been mentioned? Do you happen to have any Finnish relatives in the USA who would know more about them?
I would really appreciate any help I could get!

I am a relative of Eino Panula, and i have lots of family photos. I have a pic of a pregnant Maija(Maria's birth name), her husband, and one of their two daughters, who both died young, circa 1903, and a pic of Eino after his christening in 1911, but they are in Canada, and i am in Finland. I will send for them, and post them when i get them.
So as to clear that People magazine picture of the"unknown child" it is NOT Eino, but his sister Emma Iida, aged 2, with their father Juha and five-months- pregnant mother, Maija. Emma and the baby (Lyydia) who Maija is carrying both died young. Emma died in 1910 and the baby (Lyydia) died at 6 months of age. Just so everyone knows.
