Canada 150 - Victims of the Titanic





During our country's 150th anniversary celebration of confederation I will write posts titled Canada 150 with a link to a publication or website I find that may help you tell the story of your Canadian ancestors.
Click on the Canada 150 label on the right or at the bottom to see all the posts.

Today I have for you...


Victims of the Titanic




We are coming up to the 105th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. If you have been following my blog a while you know that in my Shipwreck post I wrote about my visit to a Titanic Exhibit at the Museum in Victoria, and I recommend it highly when it comes to a city near you.

The Nova Scotia Archives is a great place to read and learn about the victims of the Titanic that were brought to Halifax. Some of the sections include...


Booklet titled: Disposition of Bodies ex Titanic




Image of fatality reports for each person




First and Second Class Passengers lists




Check all the links on the right side of the page.
The people of Halifax stepped up and did right by the passengers who lost their lives.
