The Unknown Child of the Titanic Disaster is actually Sidney Leslie Goodwin. He was originally misidentified due to premature release of DNA results which identified the child as Eino Panula. It turns out that Goodwin and Panula were genetic cousins (unbeknownst to their respective families) which resulted in the confusion. Further DNA testing cleared up the confusion and the grave is today properly identified as that of Sidney Goodwin.
