Titanic passenger list goes online

From: bonnieboschert@sbcglobal.net
DearMYRTLE,
I thought perhaps you would be interested in this news article. A website by the name of FindMyPast.com has posted the passenger list from the Titanic. I love your website.

DearBONNIE,
Thank-you for sharing this info, as Ol' Myrt here completely missed it. Yahoo picked up on the Reuter's news release that the Titanic passenger list has gone online.

To find out how to access the list, free for the next six days, see:

FindMyPast.com is the new name for 1837online.com, where I was able to search quarterlies to locate birth and marriage records for some of my ancestors in England. In addition to free access to the Titanic passenger list, the site features access on a pay-per-view basis to the following:
