In the late 1800s and early 1900s, New York had many orphans, particularly in New York City. "Orphan Train" riders were sent from New York City to western families for adoption. The largest groups came from the New York Foundling Hospital, and from the Children's Aid Society. The following books abstract several censuses taken by the federal and state government at these institutions.
