    I am researching my family tree and have just ( after 3 years ) come across H E Buckley on the Titanic records on Ancestry. I can't be absolutely sure that he is a family member at this time but my question is this: On the record it states his last shop as New York - was there an RMS New York or am I confusing it with destination. All the other entries in that column refer to past ships? Any help would be great. Many Thanks Debs

    Clearly meant ship here! Thank you for this, as I say. I have a lot of digging to find out if he is indeed a family member but after three years you get used to small victories after long searches. I was fascinated by her history as my maternal grandfather was killed in 1942 on board HMS Curacoa - a collision with the Queen Mary. Many Thanks Debs
