Peter and Wilhelmina Rolich from Dubno, Volhynia adopted two sisters there. They all came through Ellis Island in April 1900 and moved to Berrien County, Michigan (Lake/Bridgman).
I'd like to know the identity of the girls' parents. They are either relatives, or the girls were adopted from an orphanage.
Does anyone know of the likelihood of an orphanage near Dubno? Were good adoption records kept in Ukraine at the time? They were adopted in the 1890s. One sister was 4 and the other 7 in 1900.
I am told they were Baptist, if that helps.
Thanks! I appreciate anything you have to offer.
