I was born in Shaunavon in 1932. My mother died in 1938 and is buried in Shaunavon.

Am interested in trying to find out what happened to my father Angus Gillis MacDonald, who vanished in 1942.
After 57 years of searching I found fathers family in Cape Breton, they (as I) know nothing as to what happened to him.

For a short time after my fathers death I lived with a family named COOK in Swift Current. Any help appreciated.

I'm looking for any information on the surname VAUDREUIL and believe that it may be associated with Swift Current in some way. Years 1850-19??.

Certainly it was the surname of the last governor of Quebec but that may not be related.

Any clues greatly appreciated!
