Hi Everyone, I've been trying to find my great grandfather's children in census records for 1910 and 1920. All of the children appear in the 1900 census, but something happened between 1900 and 1910. My great grandmother shows up in 1910 married to someone else (and it says they'd been married for 6 yrs.) with one child (apparently from this new marriage). Her other two children, who would only be 10 and 12, are not with her, and I've tried searching under their names in the census and I find nothing. My great grandfather had an additional five children from his first marriage and they are nowhere to be found in the 1910 and 1920 census. I've also tried looking up each of their names and nothing...Could they have been sent to an orphanage? If this is the case, are there lists of orphans for Suffolk, Nassau and NYC (possibly the Bronx) that I could search?What other explanation could there be for this disappearance? Does anyone have any ideas of what else I might be able to do to find these children? Thanks for your help, Liz
