Welcome to


For Posterity's Sake - A Royal Canadian Navy Historical Project


Formerly - For Posterity's Sake Canadian Genealogy


You reached this page due to an outdate link from an external site.


This website started out in 2002 as a Canadian General Genealogy site - but over time, one of the little research projects grew to the point where in 2013 the site, through natural progression, became a RCN historical project. The goal was to archive the obituaries, and while not linked on pages of the new site, they'd still be available to other sites that have them linked. However, during the transition and a system crash, some of the info was lost - and the page you are looking for was one of them. 


I wish you good luck in your genealogy search and success in finding your distant family lines.



The new For Posterity's Sake is a site dedicated to the men and women of the Royal Canadian Navy, the Canadian Forces (Navy) and the ships they served and lived in. This is a personal website and is not affiliated with the Government of Canada or the Department of National Defence.


The goal of this site is to preserve and share the history of those who have sailed in the ships of the RCN and C.F. The history we all have buried in our basements or closets in boxes and photo albums - photos of grandparents and parents, aunts and uncles who have also taken pictures and told stories of there time in. This is the history you will not find on the government's historical pages - and its these photos and stories that we all have that I'm hoping to preserve here for posterity's sake.


If you would like to submit photos or stories to be posted here, please send me an EMAIL ( info@forposterityssake.ca ). With the help of all sailors past and present and their families this page can be made into a historical site for future generations to learn about our proud past. May you always have fair winds and following seas!


I invite you to stop by and visit For Posterity's Sake and read about Canada's proud naval heritage.


Thank you.
