Humane Society report to Probate Court about neglected and dependent children

Humane Society report to Probate Court about neglected and dependent children

I recently came across a probate court record committing Elizabeth A. Bolton to the Middlesex Temporary Home for Neglected and Dependent Children in 1894. The record said that the court acted on the basis of a report from the Connecticut Humane Society. Does anyone know where I could find that report?

Hi,

It could be on the local, county or state level.

I'd start with the Middlesex County Historical Society, www.middlesexhistory.org/genealogy/

I looked for a county archive but all I found there was divorce records.

If they don't have it, I'd contact the State Archives, https://ctstatelibrary.org/state-archives/. Successful Searching!
