I have found a lot of information and need assistance as to how to find the census for an institution. Any quick help on St Vincent's Orphanage in Columbus Ohio in the year 1900 and 1910?
So far I am going through the Wards and Precints one page at a time and have found several "Institutions", but not St Vincents.

Thank you so much. I did not find my relatives, but was glad not to have to go through the whole city of Columbus records to try to find them. I have not had luck trying to find records of the orphanage. I have called the Sisters" Order who were there early 1900's, but they have no records and suggested the Columbus Catholic Diocese. I will be making a trip to Columbus!!

I was looking for Orphanage records in Toledo OH. They have a Priest that is their archivists. They had some of their parish records on line, even some orphange records, but not all. I emailed and ask him to look for me, and he found the exact records I needed. In my case it was when he was accepted into the orphanage, and when he departed. He was adopted by his grandfather during this time period, and I had already found his first communion record on line. I would call and see who has the records in that area, as perhaps you can save time if they can assist you.

He even scanned some records for me.

Hi, I've been looking for census records for St. Vincent's Orphan Asylum in Columbus, Ohio as well. My great great grandmother Anna Leavy was confirmed in the chapel there in February 1877 so I believe she must have also been a resident there. Any help on how to find the 1870 census records for St. Vincent's would be greatly appreciated. I know nothing about her family, whether she had any siblings etc. so I hope these records will be a good place to start.

Otherwise, I'm not quite sure how to find the orphanage other than to go through the census page by page on Ancestry or HeritageQuest.

Good luck!

I lived at St Vincent in the early 1970's and was adopted by a staff member who died in 1986. I have been unable to find out anything about my (birth parents) or the 3 years that I lived there.
Dear friend I hope that you have better luck than I did. St Vincent was and is a place that likes to keep its secrets.

I even called the Sisters (Order) who were in charge. When they pulled out, they didn't take any records. I talked with a Sister in their Geneology dept. She said many times back then (turn of the century and before) kids came because their parents couldn't take care of them, then when the parents got back on their feet, the kids went back home. I talked with St. Vincents a couple of years ago and they said they didn't have any records. I will try to contact the Catholic Diocese this summer. Do you even know a family name?
