Where:
Burgundy Room, North York Memorial Hall

Toronto, ON M2N 6L4
Canada

Speaker: Guylaine Petrin

Cathy Brown’s life went through upheavals because of the actions of the men in her life.  While most of the facts of her life are found in the records of her menfolk, Cathy did take matters in her own hands.  As a result, the story of her life can be told via both public records, but also an oral story that survived for five generations.  Both archival records and oral history tell the tales of this strong women who had to re-invent herself and fight two governments.

Mini-presentation: Pat Javor  A Smuggler, a Shipwreck and Mrs. Heron
