I am helping my sister-in law.She is looking for information concerning her birth family.From her parents' records I have the following information:
The adoption was arranged through Sister Marie of the Missionary Servants of the Blessed Trinity at their Convent at 255 North Camac Street, Philadelphia, PA in August or September 1948.The adoption was finalized in New York in March 1949.
The birth mother was Joyce Siclari or Joyce Pisano.The document states that the father had abandoned and deserted Joyce prior to the baby's birth.My friend's birth name was Joyce Marie Pisano, born August 18, 1948 at Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia, PA.
Joyce's name was changed to Donna by her adoptive parents.They lived in New York.She did not find out that she was adopted until after the death of her parents some years ago.
Donna wonders if she has any siblings or other family members. Anyone have ideas on how to help my friend?
