Barnardo's Project
Dear all,

I recently found out that my Grandfather went into a Barnardo's home in Ireland, I was intrigued by this as I know nothing about his past whilst in Ireland (He moved to the Midlands when he left the home). For a project I am going to tell his story and I would love to hear other people's stories and see photographs.

I have looked everywhere to try and find a community that discusses this topic, even Barnardo's has no forum to discuss these stories. It is like it is a forgotten subject now that all of the homes have gone. My Grandfather's story was luckily a success story and thankfully that was down to Barnardo's.

The end goal would be to approach Barnardo's with these stories and ask them if they would consider setting up a community for family history stories that involve them.

I am currently doing this as a university project but I want to take this so much further. Have a look at my blog and the progress I have been making so far -

Please feel free to email me at *** or leave a message on here, if you would like more information or even better tell me your story.

Thank you for your time
