39 Incredible Vintage Passport Photos of Titanic Survived Women

When the Titanic went down in April, 1912, the impact it had on the public was akin to what our generation experienced on September 11, 2001. The long list of the dead and the tales of survivors filled the press for months, even years. The event took on an iconic significance that shaped the Public's perception of itself just before the societal upheaval in values that occurred in the 1920s.

About more than 1,500 people perished in the sinking. There were 712 survivors. Of those who survived, time-serving, bureaucrat, genealogist, cooker and cryptic puzzle solver Dave Miller has found US passport applications for about 100 on the genealogy database at ancestry.
