News Stories about St. Aloysius
In Memory of Janet Katherine Brueggeman Peters 1943-2012
The St. Aloysius pages are dedicated to Janet's love of genealogy.

Janet spent many years researching her family history and helping others research theirs. If it wasn't for Janet, and her husband Jerry, these documents would have been destroyed when the St. Aloysius Orphanage building became Solano Hall, music building of Quincy University.

Because of Janet's love of genealogy, we have the documents that are contained on the St. Aloysius Pages in hopes that we can help you find a missing link in your family.
Special thanks goes to Janet's daughter Tammy Peters Bruns for contributing these amazing documents!!!
