I'm looking for any repository of the records for the Southwestern Children's Home in El Paso. My husband, Robert Miller Bridges was placed there for at least 18 months sometime between 1930 and 1936. His mother, Jewell Collins Miller Bridges was treated several times for tuberculosis and during these periods, placed my husband there. I'm looking specifically for information regarding her as she has been the most elusive of all the relatives since she died young. She was born August 4, 1906 in Dilley, TX and died January 7, 1937 in Fort Morgan Colorado.

The Moore Children's home got some of the records from the Southwestern Children's Home. However, most SWCH records were lost when the SWCH property was in the custody of a Catholic charity. They trashed many old records instead of archiving them.
