Marilyn Mae Harry

It is with profound sadness that the Quinte Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society notes the passing of Marilyn Mae Harry, a charter member of the Branch for many years. Marilyn served in a number of roles with the Branch including Treasurer, Branch Librarian and acting as Branch President in 2000-2001 and again in 2003.

Travel in the Age of Steamers

One hundred years ago, the steamship Brockville was a regular sight on the Bay of Quinte. The steamship was initially based in Brockville and the Thousand Islands but in June 1908 she was purchased by the Quinte Navigation Company for $10,000 and registered in Picton.
