    Hello. I'm wondering if anyone has any information, or has done any research on a 3rd class passenger named Mr. Joseph Murdlin. Mr. Murdlin went down with the ship,and his body was not recovered. My last name is very similar to Mr. Murdlin's , and since there was no recovered I.D., there was presumably only a signature , when he bought the boarding ticket. Mr. Murdlin's home city was the same city that my 10th Great-grandfather came from, in 1692. Any info you have would be much appreciated. Regards, PDM

    Which city was it? The passenger list just says 'Russian' - how did you find this out?
