New Titanic Collection at Ancestry

To commemorate the centennial of the sinking of the Titanic, the world’s most storied ocean liner, thousands of records on the passengers and crew of the ill-fated Titanic have been made public online by Ancestry.com.

The online archive includes passenger lists, crew records, and registers of both victims and survivors. There are also coroner inquest files for bodies recovered at sea and headstone images for 121 victims who were buried in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The collection is available for viewing this week with a simple registration instead of a subscription. The records can be found at www.ancestry.com/titanic.

Stay tuned – tomorrow we’ll visit Nova Scotia’s digital archives on the Titanic.
