Finding this Website rekindled my interest for my wife’s uncle’s story. He told us he was a stoker aboard HMCS Athabasban that faithful night of April 29, 1944.
The story of a ship that I had never heard before until a family reunion at my brother-in-law’s place near Cornwall, Ontario.
This is when I started writing this in 2009. You can click here to read the first post written on August 29.
So many people contributed to this blog that I wrote more than 440 articles. Sometimes I wonder why I am writing all this.
I got my answer in my exchange of e-mails with Mr. Weir who has the Website For Posterity’s Sake Canadian Genealogy.
It’s about remembering people and let everyone share what we have found about them.
Remembering people like my wife’s uncle who could be here on this picture.
I still have no proof he was really aboard.
This is why I have been writing that much since 2009.
