List of Children – Y

The children below are from a list of over 62,000 children who appear in the records of the New York Juvenile Asylum (records available for 1853-1923) or New York House of Refuge (records available for various years between 1825-1935) for whom information is available via Mr. Kidder.

Search Tips: It was very difficult to discern the letter “n” from the letter “u” in some of the old handwritten records so please keep this in mind when searching the list below. You may also wish to search using just a few letters of the last name in case part of the last name was unreadable on the original record. Keep an open mind as officials recorded how they heard the name rather than how it was actually spelled.

For those not sure if their ancestor was in either of the above institutions, but have found a name in the List of Children below that may be a match, Mr. Kidder will perform a “Family Discovery Search” for a base fee of $15.00 per individual or family being researched. Multiple people with the same name are consolidated into just one listing in the index to save on space. For instance, there will be only one John Smith in the index, but Mr. Kidder may have records for fifteen different John Smiths, which will all be checked for a match to your ancestor.

Guests must fill in the Research Services form to provide information on the individual they want to confirm is in the existing records of the New York Juvenile Asylum (records available for 1853-1923) or New York House of Refuge (records available for various years between 1825-1935). There is no refund on the flat fee if no records are found in the original records, but Mr. Kidder will  (when applicable) identify additional possible avenues of research at other archives, etc. that may have pertinent information on the individual or family being researched. Allow up to two weeks for completion. More information about this search and the “Detailed Family Search” (for those already certain their ancestor was in the New York Juvenile Asylum or New York House of Refuge) can be found under Types of Records Searched. Contact Mr. Kidder using the Research Services form for confirmation of which research service to order if you are uncertain.

Make a donation to Mr. Kidder to help him continue his work on documenting America’s Orphan Train Movement and indexing old records.
