Encyclopedia Titanica began in 1996 as a simple attempt to tell the story of each and every person that travelled on the Titanic. The starting point was a passenger list provided by Mike Findlay which originally appeared in the book Titanic Triumph and Tragedy. "ET" quickly attracted a large following among Titanic historians and enthusiasts.
In 1999 our special community message board was started and since then has become a hub for friendly (sometimes heated!) Titanic discussions.
Much like the Titanic herself was built by a small army of dedicated workers, Encyclopedia Titanica is built by its members. People interested and generous enough to research their local connections to the Titanic and submit their findings... and you can join them.
