Hi, My grandmother who is no longer living, told her children growing up that her father, James Jenkins was an electrician and went over to Ireland to work on the Titanic, and was aboard on his way home when it sunk. I can't find any information about if they hired people from the USA to come over there to work or not and I can't find any information on his death anywhere. She also told them that the Government held a memorial in Virginia, and they got an invitation to come, and that they did go. I have a picture of my great grandmother in Virginia. They were from South Carolina. So my questions are, did they hire out of country to work on it, and was there a memorial in Virginia? I really feel awful having to ask this as it seems so disrespectful to my Grandmother. But, I have to find some answers. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you for your time.
