Hi,
I am still working on genealogical search and have hit a road block in researching an Aunt. My Father John Palko told me that if you did not have anyone paying money to keep you at St Joes that you were treated differently than those who had someone supporting them financially. Plus, my grandfather would not allow his children to be adopted after his wife’s death. Thus the poor treatment they received from the priest and nuns. My father told me father Jugowhiskey as he called him was a mean alcolohic. Just what I was told by my 84 year old deceased Father. You know, my father had heard about abuse by the clergy, he even asked if he could file a complaint against the people that used to be there or represented them. I told him I thought it was too long ago. Maybe I should have listened to him. Joany
