Lectures

****SPECIAL LECTURE****

September 10th at 3 pm
"Laying the Children's Ghost to Rest: Canada's Home Children", By Sean Arthur Joyce

Between 1869 and 1948, 100,000 children from poor neighborhoods in Britain were emigrated without parental support (or consent in some cases) to work as indentured servants to Canada. A further 30,000 plus were emigrated to British Colonies- mainly Australia and New Zealand. Why do we here so little of our Canada child immigrants?

Join us every third Thursday of the month at 7:30PM for our First World War Lecture Series. TICKETS: $10.00 or free for Niagara Historical Society Members. Call to reserve; seating is limited.
