My Titanic Story

Our family has no connection to the Titanic, but there was a strange eerie coincidence. Several years ago my brother and I went to see one of the Titanic exhibitions which displayed articles that had been brought up from the wreck.
As you entered the exhibition you were given a 'boarding pass' with the name of a member of the crew or a passenger. I had a woman who survived the sinking, my brother had a carpenter from Cornwall who didn't.

What was strange was that in February 1913, just ten months after the Titanic our grandfather sailed to America en route to Canada ... and he was a carpenter from Cornwall.
