In response to three requests, over 22 years, the orphange that had my family
INSISTED they had made a search, and the children were "never here." My
thrid contact was through a co-worker, ex nun friend of the archivist.
After I provided them the 1910 census, they gave me minimal
information with erroneous birth dates for the children. No parents names or
reason for placement so far away.
After this, I put in another request, to another party and was told "they
were never here."
