Uhlich Children's Home in Chicago

 Our latest research project included the search of records from the Uhlich Children's Home in Chicago from the 1950's.
This collection at the Chicago History Museum consists of 13 boxes of documents and ledgers. While most of the records relate to administration paperwork, there are some documents that pertain to specific children that were admitted to the home.
The Uhlich Evangelical Lutheran Orphan Asylum was first established in 1869 as a home for German American Orphans. If you have family that spent time at the home, it might be worth the time to look at this collection to see what you can find.
