I am looking for an Orphanage in Mora, Cleveland, New Mexico around the 1920's. Have had NO luck but I understand that St. Andrews Catholic Church might have had one in Mora or Las Vegas, New Mexico. Can anyone help?
@MarquezPriscilla, I have done a short search of the internet without finding any reference to an orphanage in Mora. I did find the New Mexico Baptist Children's Home at Portales, New Mexico. You can see some information about this home at: https://www.nmbch.com/about-2/history/
As to an orphanage sponsored by St. Andrews Catholic Church, I see nothing in New Mexico.
For information about an orphanage in Mora, you might want to contact the New Mexico State Records Center & Archives, in Santa Fe. Their phone number is (505) 476-7948; and their address is: 1205 Camino Carlos Rey, Santa Fe, NM 87507. Their researchers should be able to assist you.
Sorry that I was not able to find what you seek.
The Adoption group is still there and active. Just for information. https://community.familysearch.org/en/group/1-adoption-and-unknown-family-research
@MarquezPriscilla, I see that @annewandering has reminded us of the Adoption Group, with a link to it (the full name of the Group is Adoption and Unknown Family Research).
It looks like a wonderful group for you to find additional help. I also have ancestors that spent several years in an orphanage; so, I too have joined the Group. We invite you to also take a look and, if you like what you see, join the Group.
I'll share with you the link to this group which was previously given to us. And to @annewandering, thank you.
Best of luck to you in your research.
I would like to tag the @adoption and unknown group for this but that doesnt seem to work anymore? Perhaps someone in the communtiy can help me figure that out?
Thank you so much for your quick assistance. Sometimes we get caught up in the anxiety of finding our information. The video. Very helpful.
