Clara S. Soto Rossi of San Francisco, CA

I am looking for my relatives, specifically the children and grandchildren (and other decendants) of Clara S. Soto, daughter of Constantine & Rosalia Montalbo Soto of San Francisco, CA. They lived in the Bay View District of San Francisco, My great grandfather emigrated from Chile, my ggrandmother from San Salvadore according to an elderly uncle who owned Montalvo Realty in SF. I m not sure if he is still alive but know that Clara's first born Elizabeth Lorraine Soto was born at St. Elizabeth's Infant Home in San Francisco Nov 22, 1931 & is alive & well in SF. Her birth father was Fred Jaramillo of New Mexico. They never married & he is not listed on Elizabeth's birth certificate. Elizabeth Soto is my birth mother. She was raised by Constantine & Rosalia with her uncles & aunts being her "sisters and brothers". Clara was 18 yrs old at the time of my birth mothers birth and evidently caused quite a scandal. Clara went on to later marry and have at least 4 other children: Marlene, Michael and one other daughter whom I met as a teenager briefly. This daughter(I think her name is Pat) had 3 children, was a former nun; she had 2 girls, one named Clare, the other I can't remember and a boy nicknamed "JT" after his father. There is an uncle Frank Soto who lives in San Bruno & I believe he is the last of C & R Soto's living children. The other children where: Benjamin, Rose, Charles, Juanita and lastly Frank. All were born between 1911 and 1926 here in San Francisco. All I know of Clara is that she was a long time employee of the old Pacific Bell Telephone company and retired prior to her death due to complications of gallbladder surgery in 1982. She & my mother were estranged and never had any contact with her or my mother's children. I would love to complete my family tree and at least know where I come from and who my people were/are. One sad note, in the late 1960's or early 1970's Clara's son died of a drug overdose.Any info would be greatly appreciated so that I can finally solve the mystery and give my children a part of their family tree. Thank you.
