Bernardino Palacios - Who is he?
My grandmother, Agnes is the daughter of Bernardino and Cecelia Campbell, or is it McSwegan? Agnes has 2 brothers, John and Joseph, and a sister, Evelyn. When Cecelia died Bernardino skipped town never to be heard from again. Agnes, John and Joseph were placed in an orphanage in Philadelphia, and eventually placed in various foster homes. We understand that Evelyn was adopted - where or when is unknown. Does anyone know how to access Philadelphia, most likely Catholic, adoption records from the 1880's?
Beside Cecelia we understand that Bernardino was also married to Mary Barney, Sarah ? and who knows who else he was involved with after he abandoned his children.
I am looking forward to obtaining and sharing information about this mysterious relative of my past.
