« on: Thursday 07 February 08 15:50 GMT (UK) »
This is not a board for queries, resources only to be posted here ...Thanks!  :D
Only actual links to census listings please, with the name & location of the actual institution if possible.
If you come upon large lists of children in your census searches..may be listed as inmate.
Here are some names of Orphanages in Canada...(scroll, don't use search)
