My name is Laura Myhre from Portland, Oregon. I am the great, great granddaughter of Emma and Samuel Risien who were third class passengers on the Titanic. I have a framed postcard from them to their son, Charles Risien, written on March 30, 1912 from Southampton. They write about sailing on the Titanic and they are not sure what day they will depart because coal is very scarce. According to my grandmother, they were bringing back diamonds from a family diamond mine in Johannesburg, South Africa and sailed third class so as not to draw suspicion to their heavy luggage.
