|An old sketch of the GRCOH, that I came across a bout a decade ago on the web. I failed to keep the source citation, but will gladly attribute (or remove, if contested) as soon as I find the source again.|
I mentioned in a post last week about the break-through I had, as a novice genealogist back in 2002, when the 1930 US Census was released, which allowed me to strike gold identifying the Buffalo, New York orphanage my grandfather Michael John Flanagan and his brothers lived in when the US Census was enumerated in April 1930.
That orphanage was the German Roman Catholic Orphan Asylum, also known as the German Roman Catholic Orphan Home. I’m piecing together its history, but thought I’d share a contemporary look back into its past in the meantime — particularly since I hear that the ruins were demolished last year.
