Featuring the “The British Home Child”

Hear Ye! Hear Ye!  The latest edition of the award winning Chinook has hit the newstands…or more correctly, landed in the mail boxes of our members.

This issue features “The British Home Child”

  • The British Child Emigration Scheme to Canada (1870 – 1957) – Perry Snow
  • The Relocation of John Walker Cooper:  A Cossar Boy – Wayne Shepheard
  • An Update to the Dawson Sisters: Barnardo’s Home Children – Marg Aldridge
  • Negligence or Murder?  (Tragic Death of a Barnardo Boy) – Marlene Dance

and more, much more.

Our Chinook magazine is a quarterly publication and is distributed to all members of AFHS and sent to about 100 different institutions around the world (including Canada, the United States, the British Isles and Australia).  Xenia Stanford is the Chinook’s editor.

Articles from members, friends of the Society or anyone interested in genealogy, family history or regional history are welcome.

The theme for October’s issue is Culture and Customs.  We are looking for articles that show how cutlure and customs impact what we find, how to use it to interpret the times in which our ancestors lived or even how to date a photograph.

The deadline for October submissions is August 1, 2010.  Email:  editor-chinook AT afhs.ab.ca
