My Dad was in the orphanage from birth (1935) until ... I'm not sure. I googled St. Agatha Orphanage and this thread came up, thank you for starting it! I joined this site just today.
I really appreciate the info about there being a history room and the fact that registered dates can possibly be obtained. Any info I have about my Dad's stay there is from my Mom who did say that he ran away more than once.
Thank you for the email addy provided, they will help me with trying to piece my Dad's life as a child, together.
