The dates of 1908-1914 cover the years that the girls emigrated from Liverpool to Ontario. The book also contains subsequent notes that were written about the girls up until the year 1918. Information contained within each entry lists the child's name, age, parents, address and general information concerning their backgound. Each entry also contains subsequent information that was learnt about the child once they had reached Canada.
