One hundred years ago thousands of people in Canada were dying because of the Spanish Influenza pandemic that ravaged the country from coast to coast to coast. Most of those who died were between 18 years and 40 years of age.
Families were devastated. Communities mourned.
The public was scared.

How did our ancestors cope? What did they use to treat the flu? How was your family affected?
