Cremona orphanage

Postby jgenesio » 09 Feb 2012, 20:20

My paternal grandfather was raised in an orphanage in Cremona and was given the name of the saint whose feast day it was when he was left at the orphanage: St. Genesi Genesio.
Where can I find the names and contact information for orphanages that were operating in Cremona circa 1874? Thank you for any assistance that you might offer.
