Hi does anyone know where I might find Orphan records from before 1902. I'm sure a lot of records were destroyed in the fires after the 1906 earthquake but if any survived I would love to find them. I am still guessing about if they will help me or not.
My Great Great Grandmother Alma Adams was Born in Massachusetts 18 June 1885. She Married Adolph Yates in Marin County 20 Dec 1902. That's all I know for sure about her early life.
I found an Alma Adams on the 1900 Census at the Magdalen Asylum. Also born in Massachusetts but born June 1883.
I also found an Alma Adams in a San Francisco call article 18 July 1894 entering the St. Francis Girls Directory Orphanage Asylum. 11 Years Old.
If these are all the same person I would love to find something to help link them together. If they are not I would like to find something to rule it out.
