I am looking for information on this orphanage in the time frame of July or August of 1923, the information would be the adoption of possible twin boys, or one of the boys adopted out to John and Anna Zukowski.

The boy would have been 10months old, and at the time of adoption had "rickets"...

If anyone could help in this search it would really be helpful!

Thanks in advance
Rebka

I, too, would like information about St. James Orphanage. My mother was adopted from that orphanage in about November 1923. The only thing her adoptive parents were told was that her birth parents were immigrants from Normandy who had both died. If anyone has any information about this orphanage, I would would be EXTREMELY grateful.

Why not check with the Sisters Of Mercy. I think they have all the old records on Saint James

Actually, a lot has happened since I posted that query. I did contact Catholic Charities, and to make a long story short, I was able to get the name of my mother's birth mother. Fortunately, it was a distinctive name, and it wasn't difficult to locate other family members. They were shocked but welcoming, and I now have a set of cousins whom I've enjoyed getting to know!
