I am seeking any information on the adoption of my Mother Phyllis Jean Novak, who was born on December 3, 1935. Some think my mother was born in the Owatonna Minnesota Orphange, Winona MN Catholic Orphanage, Minneapolis, MN Orphanage or an Orphanage in Duluth, Minnesota. My mother said she was born in Winina, Minnesota. I have no idea and her original adoption papers were lost. My Mom died June 23, 1996 of pancreatic cancer. Can anyone help in my qestion to help me trace my roots.
Phyllis was adopted by John and Catherine Novak of Gheen, Minnesota perhaps around 1939. The Novaks could have been living in Roach, Minnesota, too. I would appreciate any help anyone can provide. Thank you.
