Did your family ever tell you that you are related to the Goodwins who perished on the Titanic? Have you seen these photographs in a book and wondered how they fit into your family tree?
Carol D. Goodwin is looking for more information to use in her forthcoming book Titanic's Unknown Child about Sidney Goodwin (due for publication summer 2011). This will be followed by a larger book: The Goodwins Aboard Titanic: Saga of a Third Class Family. Please email me if you have any information to pass on to the author.
May 2011: Please note that Carol is currently being swamped with requests for information about the Goodwin family. I will forward on any requests for information / use of the copyrighted photo but she may not answer immediately due to the overwhelming number of emails / phone calls. Please be patient!

Advanced mtDNA methods of testing completed in 2006
identified Sidney Leslie Goodwin as the 'Unknown Child' from the
Titanic buried in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Lower level analysis of
the mtDNA, taken together with false assumptions, had erroneously
identified the child as the Finish boy Eino Panula. Both had shared the
same basic mtDNA.
