This is an excellent site. The detailed information on the Atlantic is the best I have seen on the internet. My ggg-grandfather, a German, survived the sinking of the Atlantic. His parents were abroad; however, we have not been able identify them. As there is a partial Norwegian passenger list, I was wondering if anyone was aware of a German list anywhere--or where to look. Thanks for your help.

Hello Randy

The list of Norwegian (Scandinavian) passengers were printed in the contemporary Norwegian newspapers, and there might be something similar in the German papers. Do you have any additional information about the sinking and passengers aboard?

Hi Børge,

Thanks for your reply. I had not considered checking German papers. I can tell you that two brothers, Adam and Peter Faber, survived the sinking by hanging onto a flagpole until help arrived. Their parents were lost. They all came from the Hesse Cassel region. Beyond that, I do not have any details.

Thank you Randy

We would be very interested in any new information you might come across. It must have been a terrible experience for your ggg-grandfather and his brother to loose their parents like that. I can just imagine the two boys hanging in the flagpole, it must have been a terrifying experience.

Does anyone have information on passenger Hans Torgersen Bjørndalen, who is listed as a survivor of the "Atlantic". I believe he is Hans Torgersen, born 22 Dec 1846 at Bjørndalen, Heggen (bap. 21 Feb 1847 at Heggen)and is identical with the Hans Torgersen Bjørndalen, from Modum, who emigrated to America, 1873 age 26 (dest. Eau Claire, WI)from the Kristiania departures list. Any information?

I have a trunk made of wood that was acquired in the Pictou area. It slides open as a drawer rather than the top lifting like most trunks. On the end of the trunk is the remains of shipping tags of White Star Line and on the front is a brass name plate with the inscription "S. Keightley S.S.A.".
This trukhas nice dovetail work in the drawer corners as well as the box corners. The back of the trunk is screwed on with hand-turned screws.
Can anyone identify this box or S. Keightley?
