Heard on radio 4 this morning that the original handwritten passenger lists for the TITANIC are avialable on line free for one week. Thereafter it is a pay-per-view service.
This service is by the National Archives.

Would not normally be too interested but this is the first time the entire listing is available with details of where each passenger was hoping to migrate to, and this can be a fascinating insight especially for those who think their ancestors may have been on board. Remeber it wasn't just the rich and famous on board, but lots of emigrants too.

I am an infrequent poster, so be easy on me if I haven't put this in the right pigeon hole etc, or it has been posted (although I haven't seen it). All the best.

ANYONE INTERESTED CAN VIEW THESE AT: http://www.ancestorsonboard.com

Might not be what we usually have in the hot deals section, but it sounds very interesting!
Yeah :) Unusual for here but definitely interesting! Thanks ;-)
very interesting:)
Nice One...a Good Find..is A Hotdeal As A Free Service For A Week And A Treat!
Love a bit of history on a sunny afternoon thanks! :thumbsup:
My mothers Uncle was on the Titanic as a crew member (he was a french polisher) and so won't be listed .. but incredibly interesting and thought provocing at the same time.
Thanks for that; searched for my surname which is quite unusual and found one matching record on board the Titanic. The initial for the first name was the name of the man we believed to have been on board so it was good to get some sort of confirmation.
had a quick look, it nearly sent me into a coma.

there is a crew list too :thumbsup:
This is fab I will pass this on to my mum who is researching our family tree. Someone along the family line was something quite important on the Titanic but I've no idea what .. good job its not me doing the research!! Hehe
great thanks, uncle started family tree and then when he died i have ended up with it all, but so interesting, so this will help me loads, well!! when i get time. :thumbsup:
Have voted this hot as it's going to eat up your credits on findmypast.com once it goes on to pay per view, especially if you want to see the image and not just the transcript.
The list is not in alphabetical order so you can't guess what page your ancestor's surname might be on. There are different pages for each class of British passenger and the same again for Alien passengers.
While the freebie offer is on, there is no search box which is a little sneaky of them! You can usually search on surname, forename, travelling companions, port of departure etc. etc.
The Southampton list is 27 pages long and the Queenstown one 7 pages (the last pages in each case are only a numerical summary).
My advice is get it all downloaded now while you can. Don't dismiss the 2nd list from Queenstown as British passengers left from there as well as Southhampton.
It was abysmally slow on Saturday about 6pm but it was much better this morning around 12.30pm.
I didn't see a list for employees of the ship on findmypast but there is one on [url]www.encyclopedia-titanica.org/[/url] and as far as I can see, that site is free and has fascinating notes attached to the names. For an example click on the servants of passengers list and click on the first one.
sounds good :)
Email in this morning from findmypast.com that the freebie on Titanic list has been extended to 30th April.:thumbsup:
i checked the site out and put my kids names under the 'births' section on there...and also my oldest 3 kids dads name on the 'death' section....well 2 of my kids middle names aint included...1 of my kids has the surname he wasnt registered under and the oldest 3's dad died about 6 month later apparently :thinking:
