Since your question has now been moved to the Catholic Nuns thread, there are a couple of messages in this thread that might be useful.

I also saw a thread on the NEHGS site, which might be useful. While it may not specifically apply in your case, the process might be helpful.

Question: How do I locate a nun with the Sisters of St. Joseph in Massachusetts? She served from 1900 through 1943 and I cannot find her in any United States census . Thank you!
