assuming for purpoes of discussion . . .
Sat Jan 6, 2018 5:43am

Let's assume for purposes of discussion that the 1902 Honorius crew list is held at Kew not Newfoundland, so what?

It's not unreasonable to see how a researcher, communicating with both archives over a period of time about the records of several ships, might have conflated the archives when he sat down to write an article. Especially since the majority of British shipping archives as I understand it are held at Newfoundland, not Kew, and the majority of the shipping records that the researcher obtained came from Newfoundland.

The mix-up -- if there is one (the facts remain to be seen) -- is understandable, and can be easily corrected. The important thing is that he found the Honorious crew list with H.A. Place and Mrs. H.A. Places signatures. Good for him. Best, Dan

    Mark, The part I don't get is your make believe story of a researcher finding the information in Newfoundland. 1. The information is not there.... it is Kew 2. I talked to Mr Penny myself (and have... more
    • Your reference to end note number 30 Mark Mszanski, Sun Jan 7 9:37am
      Chris - I believe your correct. At least I believe one end note number (30 ) should say Kew and not MHA which was an oversight by me in referring to 42 end notes as sources in my article. There are... more
      • 14% of your endnotes are bad. ChrisV, Mon Jan 8 3:11pm
        Mark, I hate to say it, but its not just end note number 30. It is also endnotes: 32,33,34,36,37 How about showing us the receipt from the National Archives? When you were at Kew last summer, did you ... more

        You've visited the National Archives but you haven't taken the time to see the log while you were there? Brett
    • There is no made up story Mark Mszanski, Sat Jan 6 6:06am
      Chris - You seem to be very worries about The UK Kew versus Newfoundland Maritime archives. I will check next week. The result however is still the same. You got the signatures and the manifest. You... more

        Glad real researches take things a little more serious than you. Otherwise we would spend all our time fact checking.. how many times you been to national archives? Be careful with your answer lol

      • A good rough draftneglib, Sat Jan 6 7:37am
        I'm sure if I wrote this and had it published, you would would not be so kind. There is more than just a typo in the end note. The story of the "hunt" is inaccurate. According to what you said in a... more
        • If you published anything ? Mark Mszanski, Mon Jan 8 2:34pm
          I would be supportive. Its tough work if you can get it . I look forward to your next article. I don't write and research to make money. I do it as I like the chase. When I have time , I do what I... more

            You weren't so kind to the RR pic we researched. I doubt anything will change. It must have been pretty awesome to see the crew log in person in Kew. Brett
      • Dan Mistakes happen I agree. To this degree, we will see. I have done my research. The signatures are in kew. No speculation needed Mr. Penny did not get him the signatures. No speculation needed Ask ... more
