If you were born in the Booth Home/Hospital in Cleveland, OH it was sold to Cleveland Metro Health and the records have been “misplaced”. The Salvation Army had control of the booth hospitals and there is a request link on their website. The address for the central headquarters for records search is:

Salvation Army National Headquarters
Archives and Research Center
615 Slater Lane
PO Box 269
Alexandria, VA 22313
Phone: 703-684-5500

The following link shows the different territories for the Booth Homes and information non who to contact for each territory. The link is http://hometown.aol.com/babygirlmanzel/booth.html

This webpage is dedicated to those who were born at Booth Memorial Hospitals and Unwed Mother’s Homes run by the Salvation Army in the 1940’2 through the early 1970’s.

These homes were founded by William Booth an his wife Catherine at the turn of the 20th century. These homes spread over the years to many big cities through out the United States.

When you are searching, it is important to keep in mind that Booth was not an adoption agency and that they did not assist in the adoption of the babies that were born there. This was handled by either a state or private adoption agency or a private attorney.

http://hometown.aol.com/babygirlmanzel/boothregistry.html This link is for the Booth Baby Adoption Registry. This registry was founded by an adoptee in an attempt to help reunite those born at any Booth Memorial Hospital run by the Salvation Army with lost natural families. The founder feels that there is a need for a central registry for those involved in anyway with Booth Memorial Hospitals run by the Salvation Army. The registry at this site is for anyone who was born at, gave birth at, are the natural father or the birth relative of an adoptee born there. Just 6 years ago there were no registries or websites relating to Booth Memorial Hospitals and the goal of this site is to make searching a little easier for those who are dealing with the heartaches of searching for a long lost loved one.

Back in August I had written a piece on this same subject in much further detail. You can locate that blog at http://birthfamily-search.adoptionblogs.com/weblogs/salvation-army-and-booth-maternity-homes
