I am trying to trace my family roots on my father's side. He was born Gerald H Eckles, June 21, 1933, in Lansing, MI. He never talked about his childhood, not a happy one, so I don't know much about it. I know he had three or four sisters. They were orphaned, I believe his parents were killed in a car accident, and moved to different foster homes. He stayed with his grandfather summers. Changed his last name to Britton, I believe it was his grandfathers name. So thankfull for any help!
