British Home Children Project

The Mission of the British Home Children Project is to add and improve profiles of all identified British Home Children of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and South Africa. Project members take primary responsibility for relevant profiles or family groups and work on merging duplicates, cleaning up profiles, adding sources, removing incorrect information and offer research assistance as needed.
