British Home Children presentation

A brief shoutout for the Campbell River (BC) Genealogy Society which is meeting this Thursday 9th September 2010.

Lesley Silverstone, herself an immigrant to Canada who teaches genealogy at Elder College, Port Alberni, will talk about British Home Children. The meeting, at the Maritime Heritage Centre (next to the Discovery Pier) starts at 7 PM sharp. At events like these anyone who has a home child story, perhaps related to the Fairbridge Farm School at Cowichan Station, is especially welcome.

Norma O'Toole will be there with information about the all day session for the Comox Valley Family History Research Group that Lesley Anderson and I will be giving in Courtenay on  25 September.
