Speaker Series: Soldier, Settler, Sinner

Soldier-Settler-Sinner 500.png Join us on Sunday, June 10th at 2:00pm for a presentation and book signing by Kanata author, Jane Simpson. Simpson's "Soldier, Settler, Sinner" reveals the complex life of one of her ancestors, Captain Charles MacDonald, an officer and gentleman in the Royal Marines during the Napoleonic Wars.

MacDonald cheated death in island battles in the Caribbean, outbreaks of tropical disease, mutiny, hazardous sea voyages, and a cholera outbreak in Quebec City upon arrival in the New World. Lucky to escape death as a young man, he survived and sired 17 children throughout his adventures - not all with the same woman!

Simpson's interest in her MacDonald family arose while spending summer holidays with her grandparents by the Bay of Quinte. She is a lifetime member of the Hastings County Historical Society, a member of the Marilyn Adam Genealogy Research Centre and a member of the Capital Crime Writers in Ottawa. She is the great-great-great granddaughter of Charles MacDonald.

Admission is by donation and refreshments will be provided.
