I am also new to family history searches. I tried something in your behalf. It may have worked! I went to this web site: http://www.familysearch.com
I clicked on "search"
I input elwood engel , death, 20 year range, 1970 as year and united states but not michigan.
A Michigan Elwood popped up that could be yours.
The social security department can give you a copy of the application that Elwood filled out when he got his social security card. This will show his parents names, where he worked and where he was born. The social security department will charge for this. There is a procedure involvedand a form to fill out but I don't know how. Try the local library or your post office.
Good luck........Happy New Year.
