I have created profiles for the people I feel are the parents of Mel. Based on a birth record for Melvin Howard Torme born 13 Sep 1925 in Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States listing William Torme and Betty Sopkin as the parents and both the 1930 and 1940 census listing A Melvin Torme who was the correct age and the correct birth location I feel that Tormé-4 should be the father and Sopkin-7 are the parents.
