Would anyone know who would hold the records for Guardian Angel Orphanage? My Grandma was adopted from Guardian Angel Orphanage, Peoria, IL. We think her last name prior to adoption was Huseman because her church records have "Huseman" in quotation marks. Please let me know if you any ideas of the direction I should look in.
Holy Cross Church in Champaign records indicate: LOUISE MARIE "HUSEMAN" WAGNER born 8 March 1924, baptized 30 March 1924 at Guardian Angel Chapel, Peoria IL; confirmed on 22 May 1934 at Holy Cross, married PAUL T. CONNORS on 8 May 1945 at Holy Cross. Her name was changed to MARY LOUISE WAGNER at adoption.
