SPEEDY Videos and Event Recordings The Wreck of HMS Speedy - The Video My latest book "The Wreck of HMS Speedy: The Tragedy That Shook Upper Canada" was released August 18, 2021 and, since it was delayed a few months due to the pandemic, I had the time to learn video editing software and create this series of videos to largely mirror the contents of the book. You can run the YouTube Playlist or play individual videos below. Enjoy! The HMS Speedy Story Part 1 - August 18, 2020 The HMS Speedy Story Part 2 - August 18, 2020 The HMS Speedy Story Part 3 - August 18, 2020 The HMS Speedy Story Part 4 - August 18, 2020 The HMS Speedy Story Part 5 - August 18, 2020 The Mystery of HMS Speedy In addition to the 5-part video series that tells the full Speedy story, this video focuses on the artifacts that were found during the three years of survey work on Dobbs Bank. Segments from the 1989 testing video are used to highlight several artifacts that Ed Burtt identified and defined as best he could under the circumstances. The point of this video is to suggest that there are important artifacts from a very old ship wreck located on Dobbs Bank and that professional marine archaeologists need to investigate these artifacts to determine whether they still exist as Ed's saw them in the early 1990s. One day, maybe they can even analyze them enough to decide whether they are from the Speedy. Based on the information we have now, it is certainly worth looking in that direction. Here's hoping!

Other Topics The Tobey Book - Brighton's Most Important Historical Collection The Tobey Book is a large book with a red cover that is available for reference at the Brighton Public Library. It also is available as a searchable PDF file that anyone can download for themselves. I use this book constantly for my research work on local history and genealogy and often just browse through it for fun. A virtual presentation on the Tobey Book was provided by The History Guy on February 17, 2021, hosted by the Brighton Public Library and I gave much the same talk to the Lakeshore Genealogy Society on April 8, 2021. The video series was created in order to offer the same information in video form for those who prefer that medium. You can run the YouTube Playlist or play the individual videos listed below.
