    1. CanGenWeb Fw: Fwd: Canada Now Has a National British Home Child Day
    2. Canada Now Has a National British Home Child Day Posted on February 8, 2018by seanarthurjoyce It’s just one more reason to celebrate being Canadian. On February 7, House of Commons motion M-133, sponsored by Conservative MP Guy Lauzon (Stormont—Dundas—South Glengarry), passed unanimously 294–0 in Parliament. The motion declares September 28 national British Home Child Day. It’s a long overdue recognition of the more than 100,000 boys and girls brought to this country as child immigrants and indentured labourers between 1869–1948. It’s estimated that there are four million descendants of British Home Children living in Canada today—or about 1 in 9 of us. The motion declares September 28 national British Home Child Day.

    1. CanGenWeb PEARSE/SCHOENBERGER/SPENCER in Alberta
    2. Lawrence Pearse
    3. Hello Listers - I am trying to find descendants of Alfred Henry Pearse (born in Birmingham, England in 1893) and Alice Frances nee Lucas (born 1894). Alfred Henry is my 3rd cousin once removed and like me is related to Patrick Pearse who led the Easter Rising in 1915. Our common ancestor is William Pearse who was born in London around 1790-1800. I know that one of Alfred's sons was born in Australia and emigrated to Alberta. I have his name and the names of his daughters who still live in Alberta but I am not posting them here as the daughters at least are still alive. I am looking to compare notes about the early Pearse family history. Does anybody recognise any of this? Thanks Lawrence Pearse (UK)

    1. [CanGenWeb] New Data Base - 1797-1860 Marriage Records
    2. Cathy & Bill McGrath via
    3. May be of interest as 31 individuals identify their residence as being in Canada. Marriage Notices Appearing in Troy Newspapers 1797 - 1860 An index to 6,177 marriage notices covering 12,354 names that were published in five different Troy, New York newspapers from 1797 to 1860 was created by staff at the Troy Public Library in 1938 through 1939. The Troy Irish Genealogy Society was allowed by the Troy Library to scan this book so these important records could be made available on-line for genealogy researchers. To see these records go to the TIGS website - www.troyirish.com - click on PROJECTS and then, under Marriage Records, click on MARRIAGE NOTICES APPEARING IN TROY NEWSPAPERS.The five different Troy newspapers mentioned in the introduction to the index were: Troy Budget Troy Gazette Troy Sentinel Troy Times (See Note) Troy Whig Note: There were no records for the Troy Times in the index but there were some records for the Troy Post. Under "RESOURCES" on the TIGS website, <http://www.troyirish.com> www.troyirish.com you will also find an informative article, "Newspapering in Rensselaer County", which identifies which of the above newspapers are available, on microfilm or hard copy, at the Troy Library. These historical records are extremely important to genealogy researchers as all of the records predate New York's 1880 law that required reporting of marriages. Outside of the marriage location itself, church, justice of the peace, etc., you will not find these records anywhere else. Most entries show the name of the bride and groom, the residence (city, town, village) for both, date of marriage, names of newspapers that reported the marriage along with the newspaper date, page and column number where you will find the notice in the appropriate newspaper. It is important to note that the residence for the bride and groom is not just Troy, but may cover all areas of New York State, other States and even foreign countries. While 5,225 of the names showed no indication of residence, those records where the residence was reported are of interest as they show: - 68 individuals in 11 foreign countries. - 984 individuals in 31 other states in 370 DIFFERENT cities, towns and villages in those states. - 6,055 New York State individuals in 446 DIFFERENT cities, towns and villages throughout New York State. The names of all these DIFFERENT cities, towns and villages along with the number of individuals from each of them, is also shown in this data base. Hopefully you will find some of your ancestors in this new data base or in the almost 350,000 Irish AND Non-Irish names listed in the various transcription projects on the TIGS website. Regards, Bill McGrath TIGS Project Coordinator Clifton Park, NY

    1. [CanGenWeb] Genealogical records for the NIXEY family
    2. Jon via
    3. Hi everyone, I’ve recently started researching my Canadian line of our family. As a totally blind genealogist, I rely heavily on transcribed records, like births, marriages, deaths, census entries, etc etc etc. Can anyone point me in the direction of such transcribed indexes, if there are any, please? I’ve tried a few sites that appeared on face value to have indexes, but I found nothing I could access. Ancestry have some Canadian records, but the family I am tracing emigrated in the mid 1920s, so they don’t appear in any available Canadian censuses. Find my Past have a total of 23 Nixey records relating to Canada, all of them from passenger lists. Sincerest thanks for any help, best wishes to all, Jon

    1. [CanGenWeb] Bean / Thompson family
    2. Delma Mcdonald via
    3. Any info on the Bean / Thompson family in Hamilton Canada would be appreciatted. Valentine Bean left UK for Halifax , Canada 1910 to work as a farm labourer in Hamilton, no trace of him can be found. His sister Annie Bean also brn. in UK married a Sidney Thompson 3rd. Sept. 1910 ,in Wentworth , Hamilton, Ontario, originally my thoughts were that he travelled to Canada to be at his sisters wedding , but no proof of that to be found. I have a great deal on Annie & Sidney but they had 3 children, Victor Thompson,Doris Thompson & Edna Thompson, all born in Hamilton, I have no info on any of these people. If anyone could help me out here, I would be very appreciative , perhaps if I could trace the families of those children they my be able to throw some light on what happened to their Uncle Valentine ? There seems to be so many BEAN families in Canada I wonder if he changed his christian name , his parents were Valentine Bean & Lucy Roberts . Any suggestions? I have been looking for Valentine for almost 20 years. Delma McDonald in Australia ( formerly Bean )
