This coming May 29th, 2017 will be the 103rd Anniversary into Canada's Forgotten Empress of Ireland disaster. Although many of us have been reaching out to share the story of this Forgotten Disaster the Empress of Ireland has for the most part been forgotten. Unlike another well known sea disaster which happened two years prior, the sinking of the R.M.S. Titanic which sank on its maiden voyage.
Unlike Titanic, the R.M.S. Empress of Ireland had sailed across the Atlantic for over eight years with thousand of different stories from the passengers, crew and the vessel herself before the disaster happened.
Now that I am retired I plan to continue my research into the Empress of Ireland 1906 to 1914 and hopefully discover those great stories from yesteryear and share them on our web site called "The Empress of Ireland Community."
