A Rootschat Database for British Home Children
« on: Friday 20 March 15 20:56 GMT (UK) »
Very exciting news!

In collaboration with the British Home Child Group International (BHCGI) a database of over 20,000 British Home Children (BHC) compiled by Norah Dennis will be added to the Database for Special Interest Groups - DBSIG.

A few hundred records will be added this weekend, so the BHC admins can test the data and layouts, before the rest of the records. Until the database is fully loaded, the add and edit buttons will be disabled.

Please see Berlin-Bob's thread for more information.

The British Home Children database is "open for business" :)

You can find it by clicking on the link at the bottom of any RootsChat page:
  Reference Library  and then clicking on
  Database for Special Interest Groups DBSIG and selecting British Home Children

There is a Help page too,
direct link: http://surname.rootschat.com/lexicon/dbsig/dbsig-help.php?dbsig_num=1&show=gi#gi
(some of the images need renewing, but the basic details are all there)

Over 21000 records have been added from the original database, so before adding your data, please search it carefully, to see if your records are already there.

If you find any records of your ancestors (or research interests), you can add yourself to the list of researchers for this person, add comments to the record, and contact the submitter per PM.

If there is no submitter (e.g. original database) then please post here, on this topic,
or contact the Data Coordinators.

The Data Coordinators for the "DBSIG British Home Children" :

KarenM and  mollipops1 

For technical questions, problems and suggestions for improvements, please post on the topic:
DBSIG: British Home Children.

Enjoy,
Bob

I would like to add information to the original submissions that I made many years ago about my grandparents and great-uncle. Their names are Harriet Hazell, Ernest Raymond Allnutt and Francis Benjamin Allnutt.
