Thank you for your question to "Ask a Genealogist" regarding the Boston Children's Friend Society. This organization was founded in 1883, and continued until 1960 when it was merged with the Children's Aid Association and became Boston Children's Services. In 1999 Boston Children's Services became part of the Home for Little Wanderer's. I would contact this organization about the archival records of the previous institution. They can be reached at:
The Home for Little Wanderers
271 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA 02115
888-HOME-321 or 617-267-3700 | Fax: 617-267-8142
If you have any other questions please let me know.
