‘Home children’ from the UK to Canada

Library and Archives Canada has announced the release of a new version of the
online database Home Children(1869-1930).  More than 20,000 names of children,
who came to Canada between 1925 and 1932, were added to the extended version.
The names were extracted from passengers lists held at Library and Archives
Canada.

The BIFHSGO (British Isles Family History Society of the Greater Ottawa area) website contains a complete list of the British Home Children although the Library and Archives Canada website has more details.  http://www.bifhsgo.ca/cpage.php?pt=4
