My G-Uncle, George Wright was a victim of the Titanic sinking. He was from Halifax, Nova Scotia. I am trying to find out what cabin he was assigned/or any info on him, etc. Last night I watched a program on how Robert Burrows (I may have his last name incorrect) found the Titanic after locating the USS Thresher and the program showed a picture of my uncle. I have been told he was a 1st class passenger. Can anyone help?

For those interested, I found a photo and sent it to Barbara. It can be seen on page 80 of Father Browne's Titanic Album. It's also in the Olympic/Titanic edition of The Shipbuilder and in other books.
Barbara, I am also a distant relative of George Wright, and am interested in the history. My G-Grandmother was Laura Mae Wright, a first cousin of George.
