Do you know if the Onondaga Historical Society has the records of the
Onondaga Orpane Home in Syracuse? My father was placed there in 1922,
at age 10, with 2 of his younger siblings. All involved in this are
dead. Is there a way of getting information from the Orphanage?

My mother was there from 1938-1943. I went to the home (now the Elmcrest Children's Center) about 10 years ago and they DID have records that the guy there found in about 5 minutes. Just a card with my mother's name, when she went in and when she left - but they were exact dates. Try giving them a call. Chris crubeo66@gmail.com
