Re: Canada-Dr Barnado's connection?
They are called Home Children. On the Library and Archives Canada website you can do a home child search by name. There is a record for a Bessie Pengelly age 11 arriving on June 23, 1912 aboard the Tunisian. The comments on the record state there were 153 girls! Once you have the ship name and dates you can search their passenger records and search the images to find her record. Ellen
