He was born George William Nelson on June 8, 1928 in Los Angeles, CA.

I petitioned the court so I have the adoption records.

His birthmother was Clara Nelson, says she was born in Washington, age 20 when my Dad was born.

The birthfather is listed as Fred Nelson, age 25, a laborer, birthplace unknown.
