Hi: I don't have any info for you about the Wyoming Orphanage, but am wondering if you will tell me your mom's date of birth, and where she was born. I'm still searching for my mother's sister, Bernice June Foster, born 9-27-26.
Thanks so much, Kris

I checked the 1999 edition of The National Directory of Children, Youth & Families Services and found this :

Wyoming Children's Society, POB 105, 716 Randall Ave, Cheyenne WY 82003; phone 800-584-9384.

If your mother was in the orphanage in 1930, she would be listed therein in the federal census of 1930. prepared a surname index to that census for the benefit of its subscribers. I have seen queries on message boards in New York State that indicate difficulty in finding the proper enumeration district for some censuses. It may be a good idea to seek a volunteer to look up the census for you, someone with experience in that type of research.

Maybe you'll find the right person on the message board for the county in which Cheyenne is located :

the wyoming children's home according to the Wyoming state Archives was moved to Casper Wyoming in 1933. Your search may be more fruitful in casper than cheyenne.
