"Orphan Trains of Kansas" is contributed by CONNIE DIPASQUALE.


The following is a "partial" list of "New York area" institutions that had provided "orphans" to be sent west to new homes on the Orphan Trains. If you have an ancestor who spent time in one of these "homes", and ended up in Kansas, it is likely that they are an Orphan Train Rider.
