Children's Home Records
There are three main sources for emigration records:
- Those created by the organization in Britain whose children were emigrated — these will usually be held alongside the organization's other surviving records.
- Those related to the children's transport to their new country, such as records of the escorting organization, or ships' passenger lists.
- Those created in the country which received the children, such as immigration records or official inspection reports.
Some useful links relating to the latter two categories are given below:
- British Home Children in Canada.
