QU: Records of Ontario Children’s Homes

Patrick Ryan's picture

I have copies of a large number of the original records from the 19th century and into the 20th century for 4 Protestant Children’s Homes in Ontario, including paper copies for one and microfilm copies for three of them plus paper copies of much of the material on the microfilm reels. I am retiring and have no further use for the material, but hate to throw it out. Please email me if you are interested! Charlotte Neff, Law and Justice, Laurentian University, cneff@laurentian.ca

Kingston Orphans’ Home: 2+ boxes of paper copies
These records are held by the Queen’s University Archives and have not been microfilmed.
I have photocopies of the complete, or nearly complete, records from the 19th century and into the 20th century. I also have paper copies of the early registers of the Kingston House of Industry as many of the children admitted to the KOH in the early years came from the KHI, 1 smaller box (which includes some records from the Toronto House of Industry, just because…).

 

Toronto Girls’ Home and Toronto Protestant Orphans’ Home

These records are held by the Metropolitan Toronto Reference Library.

 

Toronto Girls Home: 6 microfilm reels plus 1 box of paper copies of much of the material

I have microfilm of its Minutes from 1891 through  1916 (volumes 1 to 8), Registers to 1917, including the Government Register (volumes 9 to 13) and of its Annual Reports from 1857 to 1889. 

 

Toronto Protestant Orphans’ Home: 3 microfilm reels plus 1 box of paper copies

I have microfilm copies of the Registers from 1853 through 1900 with paper copies of the main register to 1889, the “original register”, the “exit register” and the Government Register. I also have microfilm of the Minutes from 1851 through 1883 according to the label, but I also have paper copies of the Minutes through 1902 so I am either missing a reel or the box is mislabelled. 

 

Toronto Boys’ Home: 5 microfilm reels plus one larger box of paper copies

These records are held by the Ontario Archives.

I have 5 microfilm reels of the Minutes through 1897 plus a small number later and the Annual Reports through 1930. The Registers of the TBH appear not to have survived.
