Boiler Request Frequent Filling

Hi everyone I had posted this on the main wall not realizing there was strictly a steam section, I'm a new homeowner and have a house that was built in

1929.  It's a craftsman style ranch with steam heat.  I have a Crown

Boiler that has a central pipe and then a gravity return.  There are 6

radiators that are all in the wall.  Every couple of days I feel that

the water level has gone from the site glass line (which is about 3/4

up) to a quarter to less than a quarter left.  I'm trying to understand

where the water is going.  I've replaced all of the radiator air vent

valves, but other than that I'm at a loss.  Can anyone help me with some

possible reasons why I would need to constantly put water in?  Also,

the house is a ranch with no pipes going underground, I can see all of

the parts of the boiler with obstruction including all pipes.
