Barnardo's Ups and Downs Magazine
The Ups and Downs magazine was published from August 1895 to December 1949 in Toronto by the Canadian Branch of Dr. Barnardo’s organization, which brought more British home children to Canada than any other. This database contains more than 59,000 names of home children that appear in the magazine.
 
If you find a name in the database that interests you and would like to see a particular issue of the magazine, send an email to queries@bifhsgo.ca. Please write the surname of the child(ren) on the subject line of your email. Note that it may take us a few weeks to reply to your inquiry.

When Barnardo’s took over the Macpherson homes in 1924, there was a Marchmont Home section that catered to children who came out through Annie Macpherson’s homes. During the period when this magazine was published, about 30,000 British children arrived in Canada through these organizations. Learn more...
