April 14, 2017, marked the 105th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. Its passenger list went down with the ship.
However, some of its passengers were rescued by the Carpathia, and naturally, one would expect to find those persons listed on a passenger list. For many years, the Carpathia (Titanic) list was thought to be lost. In the 1990s, however, the list was discovered.
This list was erroneously filed by the Immigration and Naturalization Service with June 18, 1912, arrivals, and can be found in NARA microfilm publication T715, Passenger and Crew Lists of Vessels Arriving at New York, New York, 1897-1957, Roll 1883, Vol. 4183, which is online on various genealogy websites. A direct link to the individual Carpathia-Titanic passenger list pages is online at the National Archives website.
Marian L. Smith wrote an article on this rediscovery: “The RMS Titanic Passenger Manifest: Record of Survivors – and Revival of a Record,” Voyage (Journal of the Titanic International Society, Inc.), Volume 29 (1999), pp. 4-9.
The record you seek may not exist … but sometimes it’s hiding in plain sight. It pays to be creative and persistent.
It’s no exaggeration to say that Marian L. Smith is undoubtedly the most knowledgeable person on the planet about records created by the former Immigration and Naturalization Service (USCIS since 2003). So you won’t want to miss the next webinar sponsored by our friends at the USCIS History Office and Library:
Tuesday, January 24, 2017, 1 p.m. Eastern

What is the “Worth Repeating” Webinar?
During 2017 this bi-monthly webinar will revisit some of the most successful presentations delivered to historical and genealogical audiences over the last 20+ years. The focus will remain on historical immigration and nationality records created by the legacy Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), and found today either at the National Archives or USCIS.
