I am looking for any info on Peter BEIERS. All that is known is that he was of Danish ancestery. He lived with Philomene Beauchamp and her young son Gaston in Alberta. Though Philomene and Peter never married they had 3 children, a son Peter George born 1920 and 2 daughters Maxine and Lou. All the children went under the surname of Beauchamp. Unsure as to when this relationship ended. Do know that Philomene lived in the Lac la Biche area before moving to Edmonton and then to Yellowknife. Can anyone help?
