Deafness in the Britzius family

Darlene Britzius-Nelson
My father was born hearing, during infancy, he became deaf through Spinal Meningitis. He explained his story about the military catching Swine Flu in 1917-18, thinks thats what spread various types of diseases.
He was enrolled in a deaf school. His parents knew only fingerspelling...he said he communicated very well with his father, and his mother's method was paper and pencil. His siblings, Robert, David and Lorraine all knew fingerspelling and has been up to their death.
