Surnames: Seeley
My father Glen Seeley and at least 1 sibling were placed in a Pueblo, CO orphanage. I'm seeking the name of this orphanage for research purposes and a family health background

Any info would be a blessing.

Here are the orphanages in Pueblo, Colorado :

Emanual Faith Home : too small for inclusion.
Holy Family Orphanage : Catholic, for white children.
Lincoln Home : for Negro children.
McClellen (McClelland) Children's Home : for white and Japanese children.
Sacred Heart Orphanage : Catholic, for white children.

There are a few lines of text for each one on page 43 of a book I published in 1982 : "Adoption Agencies, Orphanages and Maternity Homes--An Historical Directory."

Thanks for the names of these orphanages in Pueblo. Where may I see a copy of this book, or at least those pages mentioned?

The book is out of print. I gave permission to a relative to scan it onto a CD-ROM, but nothing came out of that idea. If you are willing to go to a library, try interlibrary loan, if your library has access to a computerized resource that will identify which libraries have the book. If the Library of Congress number would simplify that search, here it is : 81-81206

I also have a card index (in geographic order) of libraries that purchased the book. I don't know which of them may have discarded it to make room for new books. If you send me the city and state where your nearest library is, I'll try to find a nearby library in my card index. But I prefer that you try the librarian first.

To get my e-mail address, click on my underlined name where it says Author.
