Titanic records on Ancestry.com

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Titanic, Ancestry.com has made available a special Titanic collection of over 200,000 records relating to the lives of the passengers, crew and others associated with the Titanic. 1,517 people died when the Titanic struck an iceberg and sank in the northern Atlantic. Ancestry.com has provided free access to this range of records to help you discover the real people who sailed on board. The records include the official passenger list, which gives the names, ages and occupations of the travellers, as well as coroner inquest files. There is also a section of the history of the ship and her tragic maiden voyage.
