Research Project Outline

Middlemore Home Arrival of June 9, 1913

MIKE QUACKENBUSH – This British Home Children (BHC) Research Project came about after wanting to learn more about the children who traveled with my great-grandfather, Fred Walker (9), to Middlemore Home in 1913.

The goal of this multi-year project, is to research all of the children listed on the Canadian Passenger List for the S.S. Mongolian arriving at Halifax, Nova Scotia on 9 Jun 1913 – destined to Middlemore’s Fairview Home. There are 110 children who are included in the project outline.

As each child is researched, data will be included for later analysis – to be shared on this website as well to understand the dynamics of the children aboard the ship (ages, boys vs. girls, etc.)
