Hello! I am not entirley sure how we are related to Jack or Kate Odell, but my family, the Odells, are in possesion of the cameras they took on the Titanic and recorded their trip to Ireland with. If you would like to know more, please comment back! Thanks.
Wow, im quite stunned!

My father is Jack Dudley Odell born in Kent.

My maiden name is Elizabeth Odell and I have an older brother Chistopher William Odell.

I have only just started looking at my genealogy.

My mother is still alive, she will be thrilled to hear about the cameras. Are you a distant relative? We dont have a large family now, but I would love to hear more of your story. Actually we have very little to show that my dad was on the Titanic, as when we was in his last years, at times confused, he gave all his souvenirs away.
Thanks for replying!

I would love to contact you about this. I am assuming we are distant relatives of Jack and Kate, and at some point they gave their cameras to us.

My father is not sure how he got the cameras, and he cannot even remember being given them. They were only found a short time ago and it was quite a surprise. We only found out about the possibility of being related to Titanic descendants in a book, and then later online. No one on his side of the family has even mentioned it. We only found out ourselves!

I am a bit dubious about posting my e-mail address here where anyone can see. Would you be able to create an account on here where we could contact eachother? I myself would be willing to do the same. I am close to turning 17 and very interested in my family history.

Look forward to hearing from you!
Hi There!

Thanks for the email. Im not sure how to do what you are asking, to make contact but am willing to try.

Giving Lily as Lily May.

Probably the best way of finding if anyone in USA is related to you, is to join wikitree and fill in a profile page for your people that your asking the question about, this can be attached to your question and relatives, so that other genealogists can see the details and work from that and your relatives can contact you.

Thankyou so much for the info, at this early stage in my search, any info is useful.

Thanks for taking the time to look. I have a serious illness, and have the urge to find relatives and ancestors, to hand on to my children.

This is all good news for me!
