Hi! Thanks for your response. I'm looking for information about my dad. He lived in the Seattle Children's/Foundling Home from 0-3 years of age.( William Joseph Pliska born in 1925.) He was adopted by Annemarie and Joe Pliska around the age of three. I understand that the Home burned down in the '30's or 40's sometime and the birth records they had were destroyed, my dad's among them. I'm trying to find his birth parents, his mother had a Polish last name and was from Wisconsin, I think. If you have any ideas, let me know. My dad said the Home was funded by the State of Washington.
