It’s all about the family tree intertwined with the timeline. #graphicnovel #Vancouver


MOLLY- the graphic novel

 I know that my heart will be forever in this suspended animation, as I live entwined in [their] circumstance.[1]

To build the timeline and the family tree, I started with the original news articles and then proceeded to a variety of resources such as BC Archives and Alberta Archives, Pier 21 Society passenger lists, “Henderson Listings” (essentially phone catalogues that cross reference addresses with residents and lists the person’s occupation)[2], obituary notices, death certificates, special collection searches, etc.
