orphanages #general

Dave,

The most comprehensive historical list is a 2-volume set by Reg Niles,
titled
"Adoption Agencies, Orphanages, and Maternity Homes; an historical
directory, published in 1981 (or 1982). It is out of print, but may be
available in a local library.

If it was a Jewish orphanage, then the HNOH website at
http://www.kesh.com/hnoh/welcome.html
is the place to look.

Re: Orphanages/Asylums in the NY area- 1893, 1899 #general

Try the Brooklyn Hebrew Orphan Asylum. In the 1920 Census, I found
relatives there. I have no idea if this institution still exists under
a different name.

Many children were placed in these institutions temporarily because the
parents were too poor, or to busy surviving, to take care of their
children properly and this was done as a community service. I believe
that many were taught trades there, too.

Galicia and the Carpathians #galicia

Karin Wandrei <kwandrei@...>
 

Hi. I want to introduce myself to the list. I am researching an area of
the northern Carpathians (currently in Ukraine) around a shtetl called
VISHNI BYSTRA. I have developed a web site at
www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Verkhnyaya_Bystra/.

Bystra is very close to the traditional border with Galicia. My mother grew
up there and told me stories about walking up to the pass and going over to
Poland to visit her relatives during the summer. My sense is there was a
lot of back and forth and that probably her family came to Bystra from
Galicia. I am particularly interested in information about this migration
period. I am not researching particular family lines (FREILICH, FIXLER)
because of a lack of cooperation on my mother's part. More the general
history and cultural life of the area. I am also interested in the shtetl
to the north of Bystra, TORUN, and the one to the south, MAJDAN, since
mother also had relatives there and she used to walk to Torun all the time.

Moderator Note: Please continue this discussion of non Galician towns privately,
unless there is a direct focus on Galicia. People in Galician border towns often
had relatives in nearby towns in another country. Talk about Galician towns here,
the non Galician towns on the appropriate other country list.
