Hello JCR-UK Discussion Group:
I recently retrieved the Passenger Records of a branch of my
maternal ancestral family, who left Southampton for New York 1912.
One member of this group who emigrated >from UK to US is not listed,
I was informed by family members she 'Died at Sea' 'on the way'!
I have been unsuccessful in recovering any further information on her.
My question is: if I order the Manifest >from Ellis Island, will this also
include a list of 'Deaths at Sea' on that voyage, or merely the arrival
of my family members? I applied for a Death Cert. >from N.Y -
none was found. I have searched cemetery records, no record.
I have E-Mailed Ellis Island, but have not received any reply.
I understand there is a list of 'Deaths at Sea' at Kew, can I write
to them for a Search without hiring a costly researcher?
Any advice or suggestions to my dilemna will be greatly appreciated.
