I have been trying to find out information about my grandmother who was in an orphanage for sometime as a child. Her mother died about one month after she was born in January 1902. She did tell me stories of being locked in a small dark closet and being punished for looking at herself while taking a bath. I was always sad when I heard these stories as my grandmother was a wonderful person. I believe that she must have had a very good education because she was proud that she could speak Parisian French as well as Canadian French. She was very modern in her thinking.
I would live to be able to find the records so I could find out where she was living. If you have any information about this I would appreciate it you passing it on.
On a rather interesting note, I have a cousin who is a resident of Trinity Rehab, the Old St Francis Orphanage
