My adoptive name is Josephine Rodriguez, but my birth name was Josephine Garcia. I recently started looking for my deceased mother's family. Which turned out to be a Padilla family from Santa Fe, NM. So far this is what my investigative measures have brought forth to me. My grandparents were Josie Olguin and Leandro Padilla they had three children (I think) One was my mother: Maria Isabela Padilla born in 1941, Ruben Padilla born in 1942 and Jose Bernardo Pablo Padilla born in 1948. According to my grandmother's death certificate, Ruben Padilla was living with her in 1987 on 3rd Street. I found out also that my Uncle Jose married a women named Joann Trujillo (not sure if they are still together). I did find out from a church in Santa Fe, that they have a lot of Padillas out there. If someone knows how I can contact any of my uncles please email me at email@example.com
. I need answers...I need to know more about my mother and I am guessing they know more about her history before she came to Chicago.
