As part of its upcoming exhibition to be unveiled shortly, the Brome County Historical Society is seeking information from people who had relatives who were Home Children placed in Brome County (Bolton, Brigham, Brome, East Farnham, Eastman, Brome Lake, Potton, Saint-Étienne-de-Bolton and Sutton). These children may have come through the Knowlton Distributing Home or the Gibbs Home for Waifs and Strays in Sherbrooke between 1869 and 1932.
Interested participants are invited to write a short text (250-500 words) or provide a video (maximum 5 minutes) of their experience and , if they so wish, can lend objects related to their life story.
Testimonies must be delivered before April 7, 2023. Anyone interested should fill out the form at this link, or call 450 243-6782 ext. 1
Please note that not all testimonies received will be used as part of the exhibition, but may be used in future heritage project.
