Welcome to Rootschat, Rita. This isn't a forum for tracing living relatives or contaacting lost friends so if anyone remembers your family they should get in touch by PM (Personal Message) to exchange details- each person need 3 posts to use PM system.
Meanwhile, have a look at Living Persons section in Help Pages to see other places where you might have luck contacting others.

Hello all,

I am a member of staff at Flintshire Record Office and would like to state that we DO NOT hold the records for the Pantasaph Orphanage. We have had many enquiries about records of the former orphanage, particularly in the last few months due to the incorrect information on this forum. We have been told by the Roman Catholic Archivist at Wrexham to refer people directly to the order who originally ran the convent. Their address is:
Sisters of Charity of Our Lady Mother of Mercy, The Archivist, Bethany, 4 Mount Street, Preston, PR1 8BS. However, we do hold some records of the school attached to the Convent, which was Pantasaph Roman Catholic School.

Many Thanks

The staff at Flintshire Record Office

I have been reading all the blogs on St Clares with interest.I have been trying to trace the holder of the admission records and was put in touch with a nuns order based in Preston. I wrote and did not receive a reply and have written again a couple of weeks ago but to date have had no acknowledgement.I was given this adress by Flintshire registry office. Puzzled

Hello. Thank you for this information as I am sure it has saved me time and energy on this exhausting journey of tracking down the family members and history.
