Public charge #general

Genners,

I have been looking at the submissions to the Discussion Group regarding the
meaning of Public Charge. Briefly, Ida FAGELMAN was removed >from her mother's
home and sent to an orphanage. Three other children were placed in different
schools and orphanages.

In the case of Ida, her report card cited the reason for her dismissal as "sent
to a home". Additionally, "PC" was also anotated. She attended the Oliver
Wendel Holmes school, and resided at 147 Canterbury Street, both in Dorchester,
Mass.

My question is: was "PC a legal term, referring to being supported by the State
of Massachusetts? If so, would there be records somewhere in Dorchester, or
Boston, Mass, Suffolk County, where records might still be held for Ida FAGELMAN?

Thank you.
