Does anyone have information on the Fond du Lac children's home my mother and her brother we're raised there during the late 40's and 50's. I'd be interested in some pictures if they exist.
Thank You
Lisa

Hi Lisa,

A search using google.com leads to references to the Fond du Lac Children's Home on the following 3 internet pages. Since it was a facility of the Archdiocese of Fond du Lac, you could also email the Archdiocese to request any photo(s) they might have. Email addresses for its various officers can be found at: http://www.episcopalfonddulac.org/contact.asp

Online references to the Fond du Lac Children's Home are at the sites below:

I have digital photos of a brochure that I found at the Wisconsin State Historical Society recently. No photos of the building but a few of the children in their activities. I would be glad to email if you would like.

Hi,

I'm not a member of Ancestry so I will need an email address that I could mail those images to you.

Were you able to find out any information on the children's home? My dad was in one in the 20's and 30's and some of his brothers were on the work farm. His sister was there at the same time. Was there a children's home in Campbellsport WI or just Fond du lac area? My grandmother lived in Campbellsport at the time. I really don't know what bought me to this site. But I have been trying to find where I can find information on this for a long time. Any information you can give me I would appreciate it.

No, I have not been able to find any information on the children's home other than what my mother has told me.
