Wanted: former residents of Batavia Children's Home to record memories, share pictures

posted by Billie Owens in hlom.

The Holland Land Office Museum is seeking individuals who were residents of the Children’s Home in Batavia to come to the museum and record their remembrances. Also if anyone
has any pictures of the Children’s Home that we could make copies of, these would be appreciated.

Please contact the Director Jeff Donahue at the Holland Land Office Museum for more information at 585.343.4727.

I hope you'll share the results in an exhibit. My Dad and his four brothers were in the Children's Home in 1930 (according to the census), and it seems there is very little information about it out there. Of course, maybe it's not accessible to the public because of privacy restrictions. Keep us posted!
