The Effie M.ís story is one that is familiar to most from the Trinity area as she was linked to several small communities in the area as not only was the vesselís home port Trinity but many of her crew and passengers on this fateful voyage were from Trinity, Trouty or Spaniardís Cove, all small communities on the North East coast of Newfoundland.

Unfortunately there are no known pictures of this vessel, however in the Trinity Museum there is one item, a bell, that was removed from the vessel in the Spring of 1907 mere months before the ship would be lost.

Here as you read the documents you will learn about the fateful last voyage of the Effie M. and the numerous families that were left behind to carry on with their lives and the relief fund that was put in place to distribute to those families that were left.
