Comments: Interesting website. Interesting earthquake and tsunami disaster, too. I suspect that it would be appropriate to donate some Republic artifacts in such a way as to provide relief to the victims of the Indian Ocean tsunami.

Comments: William Bassadona was a twenty four year old steward on the Republic. In 1916 he married a relative of mine, Emma Buckley. I have been compiling a family history but I am having little luck in discovering what became of Wllliam. Your site has opened up a new thread for me, as I thought that William was in the Royal Navy, not the Merchant Navy.
Your site is also very interesting and I will be returning.

Comments: My grandfather, Luke A. Burke II was a passenger aboard the fateful voyage. My father Luke A. Burke III told me a few stories about the rescue and I have a telegram that my grandfather sent to his fiancée, stating he was "safe on board the Baltic".
If you have any items that are identifiable as belonging to Luke A. Burke Jr., my son Luke A. Burke V and I would appreciate their return.
Thank you.

Comments: Why all the rumor about the 3 million gold on the REPUBLIC. Surely the White line who owned the ship wopuld have a manifest of what was aboard at departure. Anything shipped anywhere has a bill of lading.
Where are the records the company had? Are you still tryingto recover the gold? GOOD LUCK. It is a fascinating story.

Comments: I just read the article in Coin World about your problems with the U.S government being uncooperative and even trying to claim the cargo. I certainly sympathize with any treasure hunter, including yourselves, that recovers and claims what others have abandoned. However, I wonder if there are other considerations in this case. If the shipment was bound for Russia, I wonder if the current Russian government could claim ownership in some international court because they are successors to the original intended recipients. The U.S. government may not want to let the Russian Mafia have a billion dollars in gold, but can't say so publicly for diplomatic reasons. Sometimes our government does dumb, greedy, or politically motivated things, but sometimes they get it right.

Comments: I receintly found out that my grandfather, Charles Henry Groves, came to America on the Republic. He arrived in America on June 29, 1905. This is a wonderful website and full of information on the ship and the shipwreck. Is there anywhere I can see the passenger list for the ship when my grandfather was aboard?
