Findmypast.co.uk launches new Titanic records
Family history website findmypast.co.uk has published two new sets of records, which include information about the passengers and crew aboard the Titanic's ill-fated maiden voyage. The Maritime birth, marriage and death records and White Star Line Officers' books are both available from today. Debra Chatfield, family historian at findmypast.co.uk, said: "These fantastic new additions to findmypast.co.uk will be of immense value not only to people with ancestors who were employed at sea, but also to anyone who has been struggling to find a record of an ancestor’s birth, marriage or death. There has never been a single centralised register of births, marriages and deaths at sea, so many of the names listed in these records will not appear in the information already available online."
