16: Primary Resources & Secondary Resources An example of a primary resource is the pictures we used. They are primary resources because it is direct proof, it was there on the Titanic. An example of secondary resources would be the websites we used to find people on lifeboat 15 as well as a lot of other data. It is secondary because the information did not come from a direct source like someone who was on the Titanic.

Smith was quoted a few years before the Titanic's voyage saying: "When anyone asks how I can best describe my experience in nearly 40 years at sea, I merely say, uneventful. Of course there have been winter gales, and storms and fog the like, but in all my experience, I have never been in any accident of any sort worth speaking about... I never saw a wreck and never have been wrecked, nor was I ever in any predicament that threatened to end in disaster of any sort"
