Thanks for providing that info Cathy, appreciate it!!
Re the documentary: - It is being produced by ECO NOVA
When I e-mailed Eco Nova in April 2001 they stated: "We are still working on our show on the "Princess Sophia".This episode is one of our 13 part series called "The Sea Hunters".It is an underwater shipwreck documentary show produced in Nova Scotia for History Television and National Geographic channels.
The show will air sometime in 2002 and I believe it will be possible to obtain video copies once the show has aired."
Cathy they are looking for pictures of individuals who were lost aboard the Sophia.They do not guarantee they will use the photo or even mention the name.You might want to contact them at: email@example.com
Re brass memorial plaque in Dawson City: There was a memorial at 11:00 a.m. on May 26th, 2001 in Dawson City for those lost aboard the Sophia.A brass plaque with all the names of those lost at sea aboard the Sophia was set on the Dawson waterfront where the steamboats used to dock.
I was advised "there were a lot of people there and a handful of descendents were there".Someone is going to send me a brochure regarding this.
Re your great grandfather I did not see your great grandfather's name amongst the list of crew members listed in Coates and Morrison's book.Of course most of the lists are still not accurate.For instance in Coates and Morrison's book - they mispelled my grandfather's name as "P. Vant" instead of "P. Vint"
Cathy are you aware of the book "The Yukon Story" by Walter R. Hamilton, 1964 by Mitchell Press Limited, Vancouver. on pages234 - 237 there is a list of passengers aboard the Sophia.
