There is no made up story

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 also got the result of a ton of research on British steamers Herminius , Bellarden and Soldier Prince as well as the Knott Line etc. By the way Newfoundland is not a made up story, I used them quite a bit to get crew data.

A made up story would be finding a photo and claiming it was Butch And Sundance working on a railroad in 1901 when they were in South America.

    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

        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
    • assuming for purpoes of discussion . . .Daniel Buck, Sat Jan 6 5:43am
      Chris. 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... more
      • 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
