Forgotten Migrants: British Home Children in Dufferin
County – Seminar and Workshop
Saturday September 30 at 2 pm
Between 1863 and 1949 over 100,000 children were sent
from the UK to Canada as “Home Children”. Today, Canada is home to over four
million descendants of these British Home Children and yet most Canadians are
completely unaware of their story. Join Lori Oschefski, Founder and CEO of the
British Home Children Advocacy & Research Association and Laura Camilleri,
Dufferin County Archivist as they tell the stories of some of Dufferin County’s
Home Children and lead a research workshop on what clues and tips can help you
identify the Home Child in your family tree and how to tell their story.
