Home Children Deaths - Background

We built this database using four primary sources: the RG76 General Correspondence files at Library and Archives Canada, newspaper obituaries and death notices, Barnardo’s Ups and Downs magazine, and information supplied by descendants of Home Children who gave the information knowing that a database was being developed. Information has been contributed, collected, collated and inputted by several individuals, including John Sayers, Lori Oschefski, Marjorie Kohli, Perry Snow, Jennifer Layne, Carol Black, and Dona Crawford.
Please note that this database represents the efforts by different individuals who wished to share what they have done, so there may be duplication and inconsistent or incomplete referencing.
