Bethlehem Children's Home
Posted by: Rachel Keller-McGuire (ID *****7054) Date: December 20, 2003 at 20:55:49

Can anyone give me information about Bethlehem Childrens" Hone in Omaha, Ne. I am trying to figure out why a particular child of age 7 was placed there. Is it a hospital? or care facility?

Venzel (Vanzel) Keller age 7 is listed on the Jan. 12, 1920 census.
His father died on Dec. 1, 1919 however his mother was living as well as her parents and his grandparents on his father's side. There were several aunts and uncles in the Iowa area. Why was he placed here? Is BCH still in Omaha?
Are there any records available.

Any and all help appreciated.
