The Birmingham Archives and Heritage have started a project called "The History of Childrens Homes in Birmingham", which is to be based on the memories of people who have lived or worked in any of the childrens homes and is funded by the Heritage Lottery fund.
They are hoping to develop an archive of materials and photographs relating to all the childrens homes within Birmingham thus creating a valuable archive of historical materials and facts which will greatly assist others in the future who may be looking for information either about the history of a childrens home or details about an ancestor who may have lived or worked in one of the homes.
Anyone wishing to contibute any photographs or written or verbal memories to this worthwhile project can contribute their memories anonymously if they wish and can contact the team in confidence at: Childrens Home Project, Birmingham Archives and Heritage, 6th Floor, Birmingham Central Library Chamberlain Square Birmingham B3 3HO Tel: 0121 464 0993 Tel: 0121 303 4549 e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
