I am searching for any information on an adoptee named JOSPEH MATTHEW BELFI. His birth name was ROBERT WILLIAM WELDER.He was born June 4, 1912 maybe in Chicago, IL.His adoptive parents were ROGER BELFI and MARGARET MAHER (assumed).
This is the father of a dear friend of mine, who is now deceased, and he left not knowing his roots, and his daughter is desparate to find anything out she can.
The only know details are listed above excpet we do know that he was in an orphanage in Chicago, IL probably until he was around 5 or 6, and then went to San Francisco.He recalled living in an apartment with lots of toys and then someone came and took him away.She somehow believes this was a parental kidnapping.
If you have any information about any of these people, or this sounds familiar to you, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
