In a few short days it is 100 years since Titanic was lost at sea and in recognition of this Ancestry have just launched a set of records relating to this, including survivor list, crew lists, deaths at sea and grave lists.
Some of this information is very interesting for those of you who have relatives connected with the disaster.
