I have heard of the WI Industrial School for Boys - but
The only home I am familiar with is at Sparta (WI State School for Boys - and other names) . However, many of the reasons boys were placed in the insitiution are listed there and would be similar to the times for other state institutions of this type. http://www.rootsweb.com/~wimonroe/history/Sparta-home/boys-s...
When making a query - please include the surname and given name of the person you are inquiring about - it saves time and let's the volunteer know up front what type of information they can provide you with.
These sites might help you:

WIGenWeb - Waukesha county http://www.rootsweb.com/~wiwaukes/indice.html
I am posting this on the Waukesha County Message Boards and Mailing List - and referring your request to the Waukesha County CC - I hope she will be better able to help you.
I have no further information on this topic.
The computer clicked so quickly I do not know if I have the right person to help me. I hope so, but if not, please disregard my intrusion.
I am seeking information on the School for Boys that existed in Waukesha for about 100 years. My father was there for a short time in about 1914.
I would like to know the reasons why the Courts put him there. Or reasons why any of the boys were there.
In general, I would like to know if his name is listed and If I could obtain some record that would show this.
Reply in some way. Use this e-mail address <email@example.com
