TNA podcast - Titanic Lives: The Crew of RMS Titanic

The TNA podcast presentation is by James Cronan, descendant of Titanic crew member and fatality Frederick Woodford. He tells the story of his ancestor and uses it to illustrate the use of sources such as crew lists, local newspapers, Titanic Fund minute books and the newly released 1911 census, to reveal the lives of the families of victims in Southampton in the aftermath of the tragedy.

This is another case where the audio-only telling of the story suffers from the lack of visual aids.
