I commend you on “Mercy, Lutheran Style” by Dollie Raabe (November 2006). It was the first time I had heard of Rev. Johann Friedrich Buenger, who founded the first Lutheran Orphans’ Home.
I would like to know whom I could contact to get information on the Lutheran Orphans’ Home in Kansas. My mother and her siblings were there between 1929 and 1933. I hope there are records of adoptions, etc., from this home. I would appreciate any information Witness readers might give me in order to pursue my history.
