Brian Tackaberry is speaker on March 9, 2015
GENERATION: ALMONTE AND AREA DURING WW1,
which is a look at the experiences, regiments and men of a typical
small town in Ontario during the Great War. Much of the information
was obtained by Brian's research into the 100 local men who died in
WW1 for the book he edited called "The Lost Generation of
Mississippi Mills; WW1 Casualties" published in 2014 to mark the
100th anniversary of the outbreak of the War.
Brian Tackaberry was born and raised in Trenton, and attended Queens University in Kingston, and a long time resident of Almonte where he is a retired math and music teacher from Almonte and District High School. He is also the conductor of the Perth Citizens Band, Canada's oldest continuous Town Band.
He has been a long time researcher into history and genealogy, especially back to the United Empire Loyalists and other pioneers who settled in eastern Ontario and Quinte area, serving for over 10 years as President of the Bay of Quinte Branch UEL. Most recently with his work through the North Lanark Historical Society, he researched and edited the book "The Lost Generation of Mississippi Mills" which told the story of 100 people from the Almonte area killed in World War 1, not all mentioned on local cenotaphs. His presentation this evening is based on some of the research uncovered about Almonte and area during that time.
