JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen San Francisco Orphanages - 1880's #general


I have a great uncle who was born in Austria in 1876. He came to this country
about 1887.. Family stories state that he was in an orphanage in San Francisco
in the mid 1880's - supposedly with a brother and sister. His obituary states
that he went to elementary school and a "Hebrew" High School - no mention of
the orphange. I am trying to determine if there are any records of orphanges
and or Jewish High School in SF in the 1880's (probably about 1886) How did he
get to SF etc. etc. Most records seem to have been lost in the 1906
earthquake/fire. I have been unable to locate anyone with his parents names
in the City Directories for the years in question.
