R.M.S. Titanic Centennial Observance Event
Titanic: The Journey Begins
R.M.S. Titanic got underway on her own power for the first time on 2 April 1912, and proceeded to Belfast Lough for sea trials. To commemorate the R.M.S. Titanic and those who sailed on her, we are announcing an event, “Titanic: The Journey Begins”, will bring you Titanic’s progress from leaving for sea trials to the loss of the ship. Each event in the short life of R.M.S. Titanic will be announced at the exact time it took place 100 years ago.
Also, as a part of “Titanic: The Journey Begins” we will bring you a guest author, a talk related to Titanic, movies (some you have probably never seen), photos (some not seen often), 1912 news reels from the loss of Titanic, door prizes, free downloads, and more. As we get closer to April we will announce more details.
30 March 2012: 2 April 1912 Titanic signed her first members of the crew and departed for sea trials in Belfast Lough. This is the day that Titanic was officially turned over to the White Star Line. This is the day we will begin our Centennial Observance. Each event in the Titanic’s short life will be marked at the exact time it happened 100 years ago, with releases. If you would like a notice for each event click on the “follow” link at the bottom of the page. Unfortunately we will not be able to send a press release at the exact historic moment; but everyone who is following us on this website, or through facebook, linkedin, and twitter will receive a notice of the scheduled release at the exact time that event took place 100 years ago. There will be a link on this page to everything that we release for the Centennial Observance so you may also come back at your leisure and see what you missed.
After our Centennial Observance is completed, this page and the entire event, will be available under the RMS Titanic tab which you may access from our home page.

Burdette ( you may find her website “Map of Time, A Trip Into the Past” at the following link http://jgburdette.wordpress.com/ ) we will announce at a later time the release of her article, which is both entertaining and educational. We would like to thank Ms. Burdette for her contributions to our Centennial Observance event, the quality of her writing speaks for itself.
