This site is all ready on the Brooklyn Info Page.It is reccomended highly for
all the work that Marge Spears has done.
The majority of them are of Jewish descent, and they came from a variety of
Children's Hospitals, Asylums and Foundling homes around NYC.
The dates range from 1880-1920 and they are all listed at the bottom half of
the web page. Info includes name, home they were from, parents names, cause
of death, where buried, etc. Death certficate #'s are also included.
