Did my father have a guardian? #records


jbonline1111@...
 

My father, originally Louis Slonimsky (bc wrongly says Slominsky) and later Lawrence Slonimsky and then Larry Sloan, was orphaned at age 9 in January, 1927.  He lived in Manhattan. After his mother died, he lived with various aunts and uncles on his father's side, his father having died in 1917.  I never thought to ask if anyone had legal guardianship or custody of him, but I wonder if I can find out now.  What NYC court would have such records and how would I go about finding them? Also, did NYC have a 5 year census after 1925?  Census records would help pinpoint with whom he lived. Thanks in advance for any help.
