Hi, I am the grandson of Frank John William Goldsmith. I am 43 and was 18 when he passed. He was the only Grandfather I knew, so I would follow him around and listen to him. My uncles and my dad tell me he never told them the story at home when they were growing up. His mother made him tell them before she passed. He would tell me the story or parts of it when we were alone in his den. He had strokes that took his short term memory but he could remember the past in great detail. I hope to get to England to see where he was born. I see that The Titanic Historical Society has taken his story and rewritten it with a new title. He originally wrote it for his family. From what I understand They were allowed to sell it, [the book not his story], to help fund the society. Now it seems they are trying to profit from it. It makes me sad because Ed was supposed to be a good friend to Grandpa. My Grandpa met Ed around 1963-64. My Uncle had sent him an article about the fledgling group. He spent his own money and time contacting survivors and promoting the society. He went to their meetings on his own expense and never took payment for speaking to its members. When he passed, my grandmother had the book published. The society had Walter Lord and Ed Kamuda do the intro. They both decided that Grandpa was wrong in his statement that he was in lifeboat D, the problem with that is it was Walter Lord who gave Grandpa the picture of lifeboat D after he had it analyzed under an electron microscope to prove it was Grandpa that was in the boat. When the book was released I was still in the Navy. My Grandmother was sick and could not make the trip. I don't know what happened but they have had no communication with the family that I know of that was not initiated by family members. Walter Lord states in Grandpa's book that he saw them off on his first trip back to England. He was mistaken Grandpa and his mother went back to England during the summer of 1912. He made more trips back throughout the years. It is funny how something written can be taken as 100% true while something else is not. interviews given are rarely recorded accurately. I know this from personal experience. Things that we assume should be examined more closely or else we will end up writing and reading books like " The sinking of the Titanic and Great sea disasters" which list them as perishing in the lists but mention them in the book as receiving aid from the womens' relief fund. Anyways I wanted to introduce myself and perhaps chat with some of you if you want. I am also looking for recordings and or interviews that he gave through out his life. I will leave you all with one of his sayings to me when I would go, "Pip Pip gotta be poppin", for he would never say goodbye. He told me that it was because those were his last words to his dad and he never saw him again.
