Sehr geehrte/r Catherine June,
Ich kontaktiere Sie bezüglich dieses Profils: http://www.geni.com/people/Sarah-Daniels/6000000015971921302
the profile of Sarah Daniels is wrong, she was no sister to her employer Bessie Allison, née Daniels. Sarah Daniels was born in London and statet on the immigrant form that she has never been to the USA before.
Sincerely Hermann Söldner
I cannot see that this info is on "et". The census information on et shows clearly that all the family of Bessie Daniels (later Allison) was from the USA and not England. The Sarah mentioned was the mother of Bessie. Sarah Daniels was only employed by Mrs. Allison, along with others. In the form for the immigration officers made from Purser Brown on the Carpathia, Sarah Daniels gave details as follows: Daniels, Sarah, 33y, female, single, Mrs. Allisons Maid, read, write, Citizen of Great Britain, English, living in London, England. No relatives given - only mentioning of a friend: Mrs. Graner of Birmingham in England, born in London England. She was only a maid, no sister. She also stated that the passage was paid by her employer Mrs. A. Allison, and that she never had been to the US before.. Being a sister, she must have been to the US.
Sarah Daniels stated that the only had a friend in England. That leads to the conclusion that she had no relatives there or does not know their address.
I was looking for information I did not have before, your site had some pices. So I came along Sarah Daniels. Most of the information on et, regarding the passenger and crew list is derived from my published list of 2000.
Also the statistics on your site is not close to the real figures.The figures were ever known already in 1912, but researchers doing research around the 1980s added names of people that were either not on board or mentioned twice like the American Line men.
Definitely, there were 2208 people on board on 14 April 1912, 891 crew and 1317 passengers (324 first class, 285 second class and 708 third class). Even American researchers have accepted these figures now. National Geographic did it as well. There were 1496 among the dead and 712 survived the desaster (500 passengers and 212 crew).
To use "et" as only source for information is good, but in some cases not sufficient. Much information is withheld.

Miss Sarah (Sadie, Sallie) Daniels, 33, was born in London. Her last residence, prior to boarding the Titanic, was in London.
Miss Daniels was employed by Bess Allison as a maid, during the voyage she shared a cabin with Loraine Allison.
On the night of April 14th, after the ship hit the iceberg, Sarah decided that something was wrong, and went out by herself to investigate, unable to convince either Hudson Allison, who became angry at her for awakening the family, nor Alice Cleaver, to join her, or that there was any danger. she then encountered several crew members who directed her to lifeboat 8, and assured her that "it was just a precautionary measure", wherein she boarded the lifeboat, which was then lowered from the ship.

Mrs. Allison, with her husband, two children and sister, were passengers on the Titanic. Mrs Allison and her family were bound for their home in Milwaukee after a happy European trip. She refused to leave her husband, and, after passing her baby boy to her sister, Miss Sadie Daniels, ran to her husband's side, with her nine-year-old daughter in her arms. The three met death in one, last loving embrace.
