Virtual Museum of Canada Exhibits

The Carbonear Heritage Society has prepared two exhibits for the Virtual Museum of Canada.

  • 2002 - A Mother's War - This history of the Hawker family during the First World War was producted by society member Edwina Suley for the Virual Museum of Canada. The project was compiled from the contents of a suitcase full of old correspondence purchased by the society at an auction. It has created wide interest because of its moving and historic content.
