George's father on the White Star Line
« on: February 26, 2009, 07:15:37 AM »

Does anyone know or have a link to a page that have details about Harold's job on the White Star Line? The name of the ship he worked on and the time period?

I'm doing a bit of research for fun :)

I thought it would be funny to find out if he was on a ship that docked in Denmark, but I don't think any of those big cruise ships did :)

Here's the story: My granddad was born in 1927, and his dad (unknown) was supposedly a seaman or a soldier and just a one night stand!

Not that there's any chance Harold was the father of my grandfather, but I thought it was funny to do some research so I could tell people that I MIGHT be related to George ;D Haha, call me crazy  :P They look a tiny bit alike! teehee...

Thanks pc, that's exactly the kind of link I was looking for. I wish there was more info about the specific ships he sailed with... And Yes the White Star Line had the Titanic.

He was 3 years old at the time of the Titanic sinking and yes the White Star Line was the Titanic people.

Thanks a lot. I guess I'm not as talented at searching the net! I checked out the list as well and the 1926 routes rules out any relation with my granddad. Boohoo  :P

But I still think it's interesting to dig up history like that. I'm mapping out my own family tree at the moment, so my grandpa is a dead end.
