Thanks so much for the leads. I've been laid up and not doing anything for a few months on these mysteries. I will follow up with calls or writing and see if I can get some help. When I was deep into working on finding 'Ann Benning's' trail, I found that many convents in LA had been closed or consolidated. I felt stuck for where to go next.
I'm not Catholic so I have a disadvantage with this area of our family research.
