I've been told that my grandmother was sent by her parents to an
orphanage for a few years when she and her sisters were young (I suspect
between 10 and 15 years of age) Dhe was born in 1905 so I exepct it would
have been in thed1915 to 1920 range. The orphanage they lived in was a
Jewish one named either "Edgewood" or "Edgeware" and was a cottage style
home with house parents looking after the children. I don't know where
the orphange was located but the family had a small store located near the
original Levi Strauss Pants factory in San Francisco. Has anyone heard of
this orphange or can point me in the right direction
