Wednesday, October 2 - Donna Di Lello: When researching her husband's Italian roots, Donna Di Lello discovered that his great great grandfather had been left on a foundling wheel.
Foundling wheels, also called baby hatches, baby boxes, baby chutes, baby windows, baby cradles, started out as the Roman Catholic solution to babies being exposed or
being killed outright, and have existed in one form or another in many countries for centuries.While they fell out of use in the Middle Ages, foundling wheels are again on the rise.
Donna will tell us about the historical foundling wheels and the modern baby boxes and how they will affect a genealogical search.
