Carla, Danish Titanic survior
Hi again Nils,

Forgot to mention that her full name was Carla Nielsine Christine Andersen.

Andersen was her motherīs maiden name. The mother was unwed at the time of Carlaīs birth in 1893, but married H.C. Jensen the following year. Thus, Jensen was Carlaīs stepfatherīs last name.

Carla did not at any point have the last name Petersen.

Carla, Danish Titanic survior
Hi Nils,

You forgot to change "Finland" to "Denmark" in the following paragraph:

"Following the disaster she immediately booked return passage to Finland where she married and remained for the rest of her life."

Thanks for correcting the other details.

Thank you, Nils, sorry if I sounded a bit rude!

Carla Andersen, Danish Titanic survivor
I have no idea why it says that Carla was born and died in Finland. She was born and died in Denmark. Carla was the only Danish Titanic survivor.

Please correct this huge error, thank you!

Note: Another woman with a Danish connection was Jennie Howard, she was 100 % American, but was married to the Dane Claus Peter Hansen, the couple was returning to the U.S. after a visit to her husband's family in Denmark.

If you can call Holy Cross Cemetery @ (310)836-5500 for the grave location I will get the photo for you! Do not email because they will not reply. I would call for you but since I am probably the only regular active volunteer there I have made many many calls to them for locations and they are very annoyed with me. Please send it to my member page as I go 2 times a week. James
