BIFHSGO virtual presentation on researching British home children

The British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa (BIFHSGO) will kick off its first virtual meeting of 2021 with the feature talk, Researching British Home Children, presented by Gloria Tubman, on Saturday, January 9, at 10:00 a.m. Eastern time.

The meeting is open to the public.

Ms. Tubman will offer an overview of British home children and the various resources available to research this topic. She will relate stories of individuals using the information discovered in various resources in Canada and in Britain. You may look at your own family research differently.  

Ms. Tubman is the author of the book, A Genealogists’ Guide to Researching British Home Children.

Registration is required.

BIFHSGO works with Library and Archives Canada on researching Canada’s home children, particularly the indexing of home children’s names found in ships’ passenger lists and in the records of the Middlemore Homes. BIFHSGO’s role in Canada’s home children story is to establish databases of information about home children who came to Canada and to ensure that the information compiled is freely available to all. Visit BIFHSGO’s website for more information and their databases.
