On May 7th 1915, the Lusitania sunk in 18 minutes. Over 1,000 people died. 4 of the dead were members of my family. Many more of my family and their friends and their staff were involved. This is their personal story.
These posts are part of a 4 year project of mine to tell the story of World War 1 through the lives of my large extended family. Concurrent with the Lusitania story is also the story of the arrival and the great test of the Canadians at the 2nd battle of Ypres. You can find more on that here.
