Large archive of BHC information released
Héritage is part of Canadiana.org. The Library and Archies Canada has agreed to publish their reels of information on the Heritage site so that they would be accessible to the public, for free and without a trip to their Ottawa archives to view the films. The index is not searchable. The BHCARA has been going through the reels to identify where the pockets of information on our BHC are found. There are thousands of documents and although we try to list the years each section pertains to, often we are finding random years in that index. Please use the years listed here as a GUIDELINE ONLY.
Identification of where these files are in the Heritage Database has been done by John Sayers (supplied the reel numbers), Dawn Heuston, Diane McGregor, Georgina Sales, Lori Oschefski, Roy Leigh and LeeAnn Beer. We once again, thank our members for pitching in and making lighter work of bigger projects. We would like to thank Diane McGregor for taking on the job of sorting these files out per immigration year.
