A 5 month old infant was left by her mother at the New York Foundling Hospital Oct. 9, 1915. The infant was named Sophia, born on April 23 or 22, 1915 location unknown. Sophia's mother was Maria or Mery maiden name unkown. Maria was born somewhere in Germany in 1893 or 1896 making her 19 or 22 years old at the time of Sophia's birth. Signatures of relinquishment appear to be Maria or Mery ( can not decipher the maiden name) and William Kominsky or Komisky. No identifying information regarding William. Sophia was never able to obtain a birth certificate,all of her efforts have failed. Sophia's baptism was preformed at the NYFH before she was sent west on one of the infamous orphan trains in 1917 as a two year old from New York to the Midwest. Sophia's indenture papers list her as Kamin and Kaminsky. Other correspondences have written the surname in variable ways of Kaminisky, Kominisky, Komisky, Komesky,but never shown with an ski ending even though there is the possibilty. At one point in time Maria may have resided at 1034 Villa Ave. Bronx, New York but research shows that Villa Ave. never had a 1,000 block even in 1915 and efforts have failed to locate her. There is absolutely no other family information given. This is it! The child Sophia was kept by her parents for 5 months. In those days a child was usually baptized within a reasonable length of time, so a baptismal record may be in a church file somewhere in New York, or a birth/baptism record may be located in another country, but without a heritage, and lack of information, Sophia's family tree is non-existent. Thus far, no information has been located. If anyone has any information please respond to : firstname.lastname@example.org Thank You!
