Orphans' Records

The only surviving records from the Annie Wittenmyer Home (Iowa Soldiers' Orphans' Home) are adoption case files (after 1910, and there are very few between 1910 and 1920) available through the Iowa Department of Human Services in Des Moines. Please call or email the Richardson-Sloane Special Collections Center for the DHS contact information.

The RSSC Center holds sources for earlier orphans' records:  a list of the children who entered the Home in the 1860’s, as well as a list of residents' names that appear in the federal and state censuses between 1870 and 1940. Please see the complete references under the "Books and Other Publications" tab in this guide.
