Signature of Agreement

The British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa (BIFHSGO) and the Genealogy and Family History signed a memorandum of agreement on Thursday, September 7th, 2006.

The purpose of this agreement is to provide data for additional years and revisions to the existing Home Children (1869-1930) database, which provides information regarding children who were sent to Canada from Great Britain between 1869 and 1930.

Members of the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa (BIFHSGO) will complete the indexation of names of children found in various archival records held by Library and Archives Canada. The Genealogy and Family History will provide access to this additional information via the Home Children 1869-1930 database.
