The Lambie Family by Liz Stillwaugh

My Mom was to come to Canada on the Titanic with her mother and siblings but they had over booked the ship so they came across on the next sailing. My grandfather was already here in Canada and had sent for my grandmother and her four children. They came from Troon, Scotland and landed at Pier 2 and then went by rail to Toronto where my grandfather was waiting for them.
