CEA - Catholic Emigration Association

Dates: 1894-1987

Number of records in this collection: 2


A small collection of papers relating to the emigration of children to Canada. Various diocesan Rescue Societies took part in the scheme between 1870 and 1932, and a Catholic Emigration Association was established in the Diocese of Birmingham in 1903. The following year, various Catholic emigration bodies amalgamated under the name of the Catholic Emigration Association and the administration of all English and Welsh Catholic emigration was done from Coleshill. Please note that the Birmingham Archdiocesan Archives contains no other records relating to the emigration of children to Canada or Australia; all enquiries should be directed to Father Hudson's Society.
