A Complete List of the Passengers and Crew
by Lee W. Merideth
Who were the people that rode the doomed liner on that fateful night so long ago? What were their names? Where were they going, coming from, vacation, business or emigrating to begin a new life? Were they relatives? Often these people are viewed as simple statistics when, in reality, each soul has a story to tell. Titanic Names is designed as much for the casual reader as for the researcher. Its ease of use is readily apparent in its format. Two lists grace its pages, one for passengers and the other for crew. The former lists the name, age, residence, class of service, place of embarkation, intended destination. Additional data includes who survived and the number of their lifeboat. If they perished, there is information whether their body was recovered and the burial location. Also there are groups and special relationships such as a maid or servant to another passenger and families are listed together to ease the task of the genealogical researcher. Similar listings for Titanic’s crew such as job titles, which department, etc. — the result is a fascinating glimpse into the personal lives of the people aboard. A truly useful book for genealogy searchers that is unique, impressive in scope, breadth and definitive in both content and presentation. Softbound. 88 pages.
