I am looking for information about my father. He may have been born in Independence,Ks. or Topeka, Ks.Aug. 9, 1908. His fathers name was George R. Downard and mother was Mary Adams. He died in 1954 when I was 10. I have just started to search for any record of him. Do you have any ideas of where I could look? I know he had lots of brothers and sisters. I think they were all split up as children-grandma-aunts-etc.Thank You for your time.
