Searching for my father's father and family
I have my father's name and his father and mother's names but I hit a brick wall with his father.
My father was Herschel Elbert Burke, born 1925 and his father's name was John Burke. This is as far as I can get on him. My father's mother was Sylvia Gladys Reckart and I have traced her side of the family back to the 1500's.
My father had a sister too, Helen Josephine Burke. I can find no information on her either. I believe she was born in 1928 or 1929.
