Umm . . . Family History Centre . . . is that a place in Britain, or are you referring to the Family History Center in Salt Lake City, Utah?

Well, if you wouldn't mind could you please look up Daniel Buckley, who was a Third Class Passenger from Ireland on Titanic, and survived the sinking, only to die in the final year of WWI?

Thanks,
God bless,

Whoops! Ack! Jemma, I should think Dan Buckley wouldn't be there actually, unless he was mortally wounded and went back to the Isles, so please don't go looking for that!

Sorry!

Addison,

At that time (not positive about this) he might still have been fighting for the British army so it might be worth a shot?

Yes, he was very definantly fighting for the British Army. I'm pretty certain he was killed by a gas attack in the trenches, but not entirely sure.

God bless,
Addison

Addison,
According to Molony in "The Irish Aboard Titanic," Buckley had enlisted with the U.S. Army and was reported killed by a sniper in France.

Peter,
Arthur John Priest is buried in the Hollybrook Cemetery, in Shirley, Southampton.
(from Brian Ticehurst's "Titanic Memorials World-Wide")

Phil, you was right about the 1901 census being slow. It was open for 2 days-Jan 2 to Jan 4.

It is still out of use and for the next few weeks.
We wont hold our breath then at being able to get on it.

regards Colin

Speaking of arthur Priest he was apparently friends with the Jack Dawson on board and he had a tattoo of I think a union jack on his arm If I am thinking of the right guy

Thats ok Jemma - I can easily see how one would say Jack instead of Joseph. I heard that James Cameron said he wasn't even aware that there was a real J. Dawson that had been on Titanic. - Beth in SC

I can't find any documentation that Priest and Dawson were really brother's-in-law. Although it does appear that Dawson and Priest's sister were engaged, no marriage license is on file for them according to record depositories in England and Ireland.

Beth,

That's what I get for posting messages at 7am lol.

Phillip,

I haven't been able to find it either. It's been an intention of mine to dig deeper on that one for a while but it's behind about a million other things I need to sort out first! I had a relative contact me I can't remember through what channel though do you know of them?


Cheers
