Tracking down family of Empress of Ireland passengers
It's been nearly a century since the Empress of Ireland sank in the St. Lawrence River, near Rimouski. The ship was carrying nearly 1500 passengers. More than a thousand of them died. Now, a Quebec museum dedicated to archiving that tragedy is touring the country, looking for ancestors of the ship's passengers. Rebecca spoke with Pascale Saint Armand. She's with the museum in Pointe-Au-Pere and has been meeting with people at the Kelowna Museum this week.
