Detroit River Fishing

The Great Detroit Flood of 2014 resulted from the second largest downpour in Detroit history. It closed several expressways and poured into thousands of Metro Detroit basements.

    Default Florence Crittenton Maternity Home & Hospital Detroit

    Does anyone know when this home burned down? Are there pictures of it to be found, BEFORE the fire! And would anyone know what happened to all the records and files they had? Did they get burnt up too? Trying to search for my son I was made to give up adoption for. He was born 08/11/64/ at Crittenton Hosiptal. His birth hame was Steven Daniel Johnson. He was removed from me when he was about two weeks old.
    Thanks for any help!~

    Apparently nothing of significance occured at Crittenton between 1900 and 1965.

    It burnt? I thought it was closed, then demolished.

    Medical records from old Crittenton can be found in Rochester.

    I beg to differ with you. My son was born August 11, 1964! Not to mention all the other babies who are very significant to their families.
