Manchester Orphanage 1903

A. Report 25 Feb 2004 20:54

My mother and two sisters were placed in an orphanage in 1903. How would I go about finding where they were placed. In 1906 they were sent to the US to be raised by an aunt. Would there be a legal paper trail somewhere? Thanks for any hints. Family name Egerton, William and Ada ( Ada died 1902) Children Leah, Margaret and Emily. Dawn
