St. Mary's Orphanage and Medical Records

I am starting to investigate our family history but it seems that it all begins @ Orphanage and Medical Records. My Grandfather Andrew we believe was placed there because his father could not take care of the family after the dealth of his Mother. I am going to write the archives but was hoping maybe someone has info about St. Mary's. My father says the family was quite large and maybe some of the kids were adopted under the surname "Roberts". Does anyone have any info.

I was born here in the city in 1962

My father Patrick was born here in 1952

His father was born here around the turn of the century. His name was Andrew.






The Archives does not maintain the records for any of the orphanages that operated in the Archdiocese. The records for the following orphanages were transferred to Associated Catholic Charities when they were closed: St. Anthony’s Orphan Asylum (1854-1943), St. Elizabeth's Home for Colored Infants and Children (1881-1960), St. Francis Orphanage for Colored Children (1889-1950), St. Mary’s Female Orphan Asylum (1818-1960), St. Vincent’s Infant Home (1856-1960), St. James Home for Boys (1878-1949), and St. Mary’s Industrial School for Boys (1866-1960). Individuals interested in obtaining information from these records will need to contact Associated Catholic Charities directly to request assistance (Records, Associated Catholic Charities, 11 East Mt. Royal Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21202-2714). These records are not open to researchers. Please submit all requests in writing.

For information on all other orphanages, please contact the Archives.
