In Reply to: Girls Co-operative Home - 1897 Dallas by Doris Dickerson of 1985

Hi Doris,
The Girls' Co-Operative Home became the Young Women's Christian Association of Dallas or YWCA. You can read a 1902 "Dallas Morning News" article about the change of the organization at freepages.history.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~jwheat/charities.html .

I'd contact the regional office of the YWCA in Dallas or the Dallas area. I'd do a Google search to find them.

Since it was a private organization, I don't know if the records would have been saved or microfilmed. I'd look up your local Mormon Church Family History Center and ask them. They have gone around the world filming documents. Successful Searching!
