Guardian Titanic article mention of ET

Inger Sheil

Dec 3, 2000
Got into work today and found that a kind colleague had left a copy of the Canberra Times insert from 30 Apil on "Families caught in the Titanic's Wake." The double page spread, originally from the Guardian, recounts the stories of families connected with the sinking.

Of particular interest to this forum might be the story of William Sargent, great-nephew of Henry Chapman. It contains the following paragraph:


More recently the growth of the internet has created new resources for research and, in particular, there's a website called I've been able to find out lots of new information about my great-uncle and his wife. I remember very clearly the moment I came across the website: it was extraordinary to realise that people from my family had inspired others to research their lives, to find out who they were and what they were doing on the Titanic.

Well put!​
