8: Dear Diary, We are on our way to shore! Last night was definitely the scariest experience I've ever had. Considering I'm only 18, I hope the sinking of the Titanic is the scariest I'll ever have! It seems like forever since I boarded that horrid ship in Southampton. Now I wish I had never left Finland, but Oh! How I long to get to my family in Olympia... I have met many nice men, especially one who shows great interest in me! His destination is near mine, so maybe he will ask me to marry him! Anna Sofia
9: Obituary Anna Sofia Sjoblom (April 14, 1894- November 3, 1975) Miss Anna Sofia Sjoblom was one of the few survivors of the Titanic tragedy at only age eighteen. She boarded the Titanic in Munsala, Finland for Olympia, U.S. She was a third class passenger. She died yesterday from Cerebral Vascular Accident (stroke). Miss Sjoblom will be buried at Mountain View Cemetery in Tacoma on Friday.
10: Extraordinary Facts | The passengers never had a lifeboat drill. | There was a heated swimming pool on board, the first for it's time. | There were 29,000 pieces of glassware on board | There were 40,000 fresh eggs and 2.500 lbs. of sausage on board. | Over 10,000 light bulbs were used to illuminate electric lights and heaters. | If the Titanic was stood upright, it would be taller than any skyscraper of it's time. | There were nine decks. | The ship had 2 libraries and 2 barber shops.
11: Primary and Secondary Resources | While researching, we read through an interview with a Titanic survivor, Frank Prentice. This would be a primary source, because Frank was actually there and witnessed the tragedy. | The newspaper above would be considered a secondary source. The reason for that is that the journalist wasn't actually there to see the tragedy.
