John (Jack) Steele lived in Alberta in the 40s - RCA, his position was a sapper. He was born in Glace Bay, NS. August 31, 1920. He was married shortly before his release from service. I believe he only served 4 years with the service. Rumour was he married a lady from PEI or went to PEI and not sure of her name. They apparently had a large family. Any info would be greatly appreciated. I'm his niece Deb and have been searching for 20 years.

searching for father Peter Nicholson

I seek information on my father Peter Nicholson. I don't know if he is alive or deceased. He was born around 1921, so would be approximately 86 years of age. I know he fathered my half brother whose name is also Peter (Nicholson).

In 1959 he would have been approximately 3 or 4. My father was living on his own, not with my mother who had divorced him several years before. He brought my brother Peter to meet me. He looked somewhat like me.....brown hair, brown eyes, fair skin.

If alive, he could be living in the Peterboro, Ontario area. (Maple Lake?)
If you know anything about him would you be so kind as to email me any details.

Thank you
ps: he once worked as a firefighter in the Toronto area.
