My father Harry and his twin Larry are looking for information on their birth family. They were born in 1944 and adopted in 1954. They have no information on birth family other than mothers name may possibly be Helena and Father may be Gus. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Do you know what part of IL was their birth location in 1944? The county and city could help, if you know.
I know they were most likely born in Cook County, they aren't sure if that's where they were adopted as well.
I am first cousin to Harry and Larry. We played together as children Helena was my mothers sister. Please email: butchooms1942@gmail.com
