Before BIFHSGO Education Talk — Skimming the Surface of British Merchant Marine Records by Barbara Tose.
No Irish Country Doctor — Roy Thomas’ great-uncle Michael Laffan was no Irish country doctor. He spent his medical career, from 1902 to 1926, in the Royal Navy. Consulting the Navy List, Roy discovered that Surgeon Laffan served far beyond the Irish Seas in the Chinese, Australian, and South African stations, as well as the Med and waters closer to home.
Discovery Tables are: Merchant Marine Records with Barbara Tose and Archive CD Books Canada.
The meetings are free and open to all. See www.bifhsgo.ca for more details.
