I can help a little with where the information for the Catholic orphanges is for St Joseph both boys and girls. I do not know where the cencus records were kept. I had a nun help me find information for my family all the records were in a safe into what is now the St. Joseph home for children located in S Mpls, MN. they had letters, report cards, notes, entry papers,, ect. She knew where to look in the safe as everything was together. You might want to contact the archives for the order which I think was St. Benidictine. You could call the archdioce. But the archivest is the person to see. I located another membe of our family through that and consequently her family. I am sure she is gone now and she was old in the 1990's. The St Joseph Orphange on Randall is long gone and town down. you might was to google it to get old pictures. they split sometime in the early 1900's because of overcrowding and the girls went to Mpls. I had lunch with her and some of the children which were then in the system as Juvinelles. Also contact the church she or he came from marge
