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

Eric
Actually, I believe Edgewood was the Protestant Orphanage. Homewood
Terrace was the Jewish orphanage. It was in the hills above Ocean Avenue,
as I remember. If you put the two phrases "homewood terrace" "san
francisco" into a good search engine, you will find several sites with
good information about the orphanage.

Hi,
I am researching my ggfather David GOLDBERG
and I believe he may have been a founding father
of the Independent Sons of Israel of Yonkers, New
York in 1915(?). I believe they are still in existance.
Does anyone know if they will respond
to written requests for information?

Thank you for your help.

There was an Edgewood Children's Home in San Francisco, but it was not a
Jewish orphanage. Established in 1851, it was also known as the San
Francisco Protestant Orphanage. In 1979, it was still located at 1801
Vincente St., San Francisco, 94116, and involved in casework and
psychiatric services. They might still possibly be at that location.

The only large Jewish orphanage in operation in that time frame was the
Pacific Hebrew Orphan Asylum located in 1891 at 436 O'Farrell. In 1999
they found missing records and books going back to 1870.

Hope this helps!!!
