Gloria Tubman will seek to dispel previously accepted ideas about British Home Children in the featured presentation "Researching British Home Children – An Education" for OGS Ottawa Branch this Saturday, 27 June.
Gloria, a leading members of the Ontario East British Home Child Family, will discuss publicly available information about these children, the majority came to Canada during the period of 1869 to 1939. A research case will demonstrate the information in the public domain that one can expect to uncover while searching for information on a Home Child or any other person.
The meeting, which gets underway at 1 pm in the Ottawa City Archives, 100 Tallwood Drive, with a networking session will also be the occasion for the Branch Annual General Meeting.
The Computer Interest Group will meet following the afternoon session.
