Need help locating orphanage records from the ISRAEL ORPHAN ASYLUM #records


Raylene Gurewich
 

My mother was an orphan as an infant in the Israel Orphan Asylum in Manhattan per the 1930 census. I had requested her records from the JCCA, but nothing was found. Is there any other place I can look? I would like intake information. She was also in another orphanage in Manhattan when she was a bit older before being placed in foster care. She doesn't remember the name.

Have you tried the Center for Jewish History
Website.  I found my mother's cousins there
in a NYC Jewish orphanage.  I found the 2 names and they were kind enough to forward the copies of their admission information to me.

American Jewish Historical Society <reference@...> told me they "have online searchable databases available for both the Hebrew Orphan Asylum and the Brooklyn Hebrew Orphan Asylum."  Try these links:
 
 
 
Also, this "link to a website that contains in-depth information about Jewish Orphanages in the United States. You may be able to locate other possibilities regarding where your great grandfather had been placed, if in fact he was not at HOA or BHOA."
