Guess were back in the Wait And See mode then. If the networks are unaware of recent developments, I doubt very much it'll stay that way for long. Our's may be a small community, but it's a vocal one. If the networks show something no longer valid, they tend to hear about it.

I wonder where this brings us to now. Think about it:
From 1912-2002, the world thought the grave and it's harrowing story was of that of Gosta Palsson,
From 2002-2007, we were brought to heartache upon finding a clear picture and identification of Eino Panula,
2007- now we are brought to the conclusion that the child is Sidney Goodwin.
For Gosta and Eino, people all over the world, read their stories, connected to them, mourned them, and laid them to rest in Halifax. The world HAS the impression that after the books and t.v. shows, that Eino is in the grave, but now it is Sidney.
I wonder how will the world be notified, and what will the stories be? Will Sidney have a book/t.v. show? What will happen to Eino's? His book is out for the world to belief and belief(more so only Finnish-speaking people like myself=)).
It just seems Sidney is still shadowed by the celebration of Eino in 2002, and i'm wondering how will this mistake reach the world?

They're both on Wikipedia, that's for sure.

On September the 9th, take a few moments to remember one of Titanic's youngest victims, the Unknown Child, Sidney Goodwin.

Happy Birthday, Sidney, and rest in peace.

Titanic's unknown child is finally ID'd

Five days after the passenger ship the Titanic sank, the crew of the rescue ship Mackay-Bennett pulled the body of a fair-haired, roughly 2-year-old boy out of the Atlantic Ocean on April 21, 1912. Along with many other victims, his body went to a cemetery in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where the crew of the Mackay-Bennett had a headstone dedicated to the "unknown child" placed over his grave.

When it sank, the Titanic took the lives of 1,497 of the 2,209 people aboard with it. Some bodies were recovered, but names remained elusive, while others are still missing. But researchers believe that they have finally resolved the identity of the unknown child –concluding that he was 19-month-old Sidney Leslie Goodwin from England.

The body of a little boy was pulled out of the water by the crew of the rescue ship Mackay-Bennett, five days after the sinking. He was buried at a cemetery in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where a headstone dedicated to the 'unknown child' was placed over his grave.
The child was incorrectly identified twice in the past, but now researchers believe that they finally resolved the identity of the child. They believe he was 19-month-old Sidney Leslie Goodwin from England. The rest of his family also died during the sinking: http://www.tothecenter.com/index.php?readmore=15891

I'm glad this is over. for Hildur's sake especially. I wish the scientists had made sure of their findings before stating what turned out to be the wrong conclusion.

>>If this was determined in 2007, why is this a new story?<<

I was wondering the same thing when a chum brought this to my attention a couple of days ago. I suppose it's news because now it's seen as being "officially" confirmed. The reason this has me puzzled is because much the same was being said in 2007.

The boy unknown

The body of a boy was found floating in a lifejacket six days after the wreck. So much time had been identified because Durantes years people tried to find out what the world really was. other researchers found long the body was Like Leonard Palsson was a Swedish boy of 2 years.
Until genealogist and with the help of experts in Finland found a great-granddaughter of mother Panula and asked for a blood sample and genetic profiles left no doubt that the baby was Eino Panula Viljami. Our take long to figure out this case.

But they all got it wrong, Caroline. To find out who the 'unknown child' really was, proceed as I've advised before - use the search engine to find existing threads in which his identity has been discussed, wrongly concluded to be Eino, then finally and truly revealed.

Caroline, you really need to keep up with the news. This particular missive was refuted back in 2007 and it was determined by DNA that the child was Sidney Goodwin.

Now please, once more from the top, why are you persisting with these shotgun declarative postings of yours? Everything you've been putting up is either wrong of something most of us already know.

Well, from time to time we all post stuff that's already known, or is just plain wrong. The best way to avoid this is to become familiar with what's already here, and that takes a bit of time. Meanwhile, Caroline, my advice is to post your thoughts in existing threads rather than start a new one every time you have something to say, as your new threads are very likely to be duplicates until you know how the forum is structured. A forum with as much content as this one does need a structure, And if we had as many threads as there are posts then we'd have no structure at all.

Glad to see this little boy finally has his name on his headstone, as there are so many victims whose headstones display nothing but the date on which they died and the numbers they were given when their bodies were recovered. If only we could find out who they all are so they can all have their names on their headstones.
