Dorothy Shier - The Home Children/Barnardo Children

Tens of thousands of children, who could not be supported by parents in England, were sent to Canada by Dr. Barnardo. Many intakes of children, especially of girls, occurred in nearby Peterborough, where a stop-over house maintained a boarding operation from 1886 to 1922. This may be just one of Dorothy's topics. But, she is also a direct descendant of a Barnardo child.  
Refreshments during the break. All are welcome.
