Surnames: Lavin
The stumbling block for our heritage, is the understanding that the orphanage burned down, before an inquiry of his past was made by Thomas Laven in 1940. He was admitted, as a baby, to the orphanage, perhaps in February 1889. He was not adopted, but at age 9 or 13 went to work on a farm. We have conflicting information about his mother's name. HIS father's name was thought to be Thomas Lavin or Laven. He knew that he had two older brothers--William and Harry who also were in the orphanage for awhile. Would there have been another source for these records? The history of this family has been a mystery for all this time. Any help would be appreciated by many of the younger generations. Thank you.
