Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is GenealogyBuff and I am a marine historian and genealogist living in Truro, Nova Scotia.

I have spent many years trying to uncover the names and faces of those lost in major disasters. As i have lost a family in the sinking of the Titanic, i feel compelled to ensure all victims have a name.I also spent a lot of time transcribing local cemeteries for genealogical purposes.
I focus my studies on shipping disasters, and if anyone is interested in discussing shipping disasters (to whom you will find on my page) i would be delighted.

Regarding memorials i have created: If a memorial has been created for one of your family members, ask and i will transfer it over to you.

I found the images of Helen and Anna Liebenow, and the Gallagher family on the General Slocum Documentary "Ship Ablaze". It's now on YouTube so you can see it on there

RE: Pringle Family Relations
My Great/Great Grandparents (on my mother's side, through my grandmother) were James Riley Pringle/Eliz. Sedore, my Great Grandparents were Ada Beatrice Pringle/Reginald Asselstine, my grandmother was Marie Francis Asselstine/Mrs Wilbert South, my mother was Beatrice South/Mrs Arthur Donaldson. So yeah, I am a Pringle. I am doing a complete Pringle family work up, like I did for my Donaldson family. How are you related to the Pringles. Do you know any old Pringles who can help with family history?

RE: Mary Polly Richards

I think you may be interested in an Find A Grave memorial I photographed a while back.

It is a memorial for a husband and wife lost when the SS Vestris sunk in the Atlantic in 1928. The memorial has the newspaper article on it also. Find A Grave # is 74600848.

Corrected. I did not find her her parents, so they are not linked.

Thank you so much for taking the time to locate and photograph the memorial for me it is greatly appreciated. I hope you do not mind if I possibly use your photo (with proper credit) for a WWII project I am working on, if not OK please let me know. Thanks again, it is volunteers such as yourself that make this such a great site, Cheers!!
