New York Orphan Records

The little ones without a voice. Their records sealed, their very existence an embarrassment, just a stigma upon society
that needs to be shut how some have felt. While their records are scarce, we strive to collect as much
material on them as possible. We believe that every child is a person and deserves to know their heritage whether it
be good, bad or ugly.
