Canada - 'Home Children' Records

I extracted the entries below, during an exhaustive search of the online records of the National Archives of Canada.  You can click on the link here, to pay them a visit.

The section whence these indices come, carries the following explanation:

"Between 1869 and the early 1930s, over 100,000 children were sent to Canada from Great Britain during the child emigration movement. Members of the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa are locating and indexing the names of these Home Children found in passenger lists in the custody of the National Archives of Canada."
