I am looking for two sisters Celia and Carmen Duarte. They were born in the Los Angeles area of California to Alejandro Duarte and Elvira Juarez Duarte. The DOB I have for Carmen is February 16, 1928 or 29.
When they were four and six years old Elvira's appendix burst and she was in the hospital for months.When she came home her husband said the girls were with their God-parents and went to Mexico. They may have been with two women named Soledad and Guadalupe Ortiz Portillo. Elvira searched for them for years until the day she died just a few years ago. I am her daughter in-law and I promised her I would continue to search for her girls.
If anyone knows Celia or Carmen or any of their relatives please help us her family. Elvira remarried in the 1950"s and has 3 sons and another daughter who would love to meet and get to know you and show photos and tell stories about their lovely mother Elvira.
Thank you so very much.
