Thank you to those commenting on the journal at last night’s meeting. Glad you read and enjoy it!
Thank you to all our authors who participated in our recent article challenge – “My Ancestor Was A __________” I loved the articles, each with such a different take on the theme. As promised, there will be a prize draw – watch for that in January.
As a followup to some of the December 2015 journal articles
Home Children – Library and Archives Canada just today published a “Guide to Sending Organizations and Receiving Homes”, but apparently it’s still not public. Instead follow this link Home Children: 1869-1930 to LAC’s many resources for Home Child research. The Guide should be linked there very soon.
Check out Library and Archives Canada’s Blog too.
And this BCGS website section: British Home Children; British Child Migrants
Vancouver Province long term subscribers, 1929 – Follow the link to this new index on the BCGS website – over 2700 names from around British Columbia.
