BELFI/WELDER 1912 adoptee

I am searching for any information on an adoptee named JOSPEH
His birth name was ROBERT WILLIAM WELDER. He was born June 4,
1912 maybe
in Chicago, IL. His adoptive parents were ROGER BELFI and

This is the father of a dear friend of mine, who is now
deceased, and he
left not knowing his roots, and his daughter is desparate to
find anything
out she can.

The only know details are listed above excpet we do know that he
was in an
orphanage in Chicago, IL probably until he was around 5 or 6,
and then went
to San Francisco. He recalled living in an apartment with lots
of toys and
then someone came and took him away. She somehow believes this
was a
parental kidnapping.

If you have any information about any of these people, or this
familiar to you, please email me at
