Wow I have never heard of such a thing till now! It makes total sense as his sons were pattern card makers in Manchester so he was clearly in the textile trade also. Thank you so much! You learn something new every day! :-)

This comes from a marriage certificate and I just can't seem to figure out what it says. I have attached the image.

Thanks Don, I will give that a try.  :)


Thank you all so much, the London, England reference for Jean is a huge help. You guys have been amazing!. Don, Alex and Annie had no children, nor did Alex and his second wife Joan. I had no idea that Joan was from Canada also, and it seems from above that June was Joan's cousin. In relation to how long Alex was in Winnipeg, I don't know, but in 1970 he was living in Agnes Street, Winnipeg. This is the year that he and Annie divorced (in Copenhagen). Annie Helen returned to Canada immediately after the divorce .... I wonder if she went to Toronto and not to Winnipeg, perhaps Alex moved from Toronto to Winnipeg after the divorce for a new start???

Is there any easy way to search births, deaths and marriages in Canada?

Thank you all so much again.


Hi Don,

His name was Alex Dobson. He died in 1998 in New Zealand, but his estate has not yet been settled. Any help you could give me in locating Annie Helen and June Maxworthy (both of Winnipeg whom were in Winnipeg at about that time) would be really really appreciated.


Canada Lookup Request / Beneficiaries of a Will who may be or have been in Winnipeg

Hi, I was hoping someone might be able to help me. I am trying to locate the beneficiaries of a Will of a former Canadian Mounted Police officer who died in New Zealand (which is where I am). He made bequests to two women in Winnipeg, who are mostly probably deceased themselves. These women are Annie Helen Dobson, nee Jacobsen, b 1930 in Denmark. Was last heard of in Canada in 1970 after she divorced her husband (Alex Dobson) and may have gone back to the name Jacobsen. The other is June Maxworthy, who I know nothing more about. I would like to locate the descendants of these two ladies, but first I need to find where they have ended up. Any help would be really, really appreciated as I don't have a lot of experience with researching in Canada.

Thank you all so very much. You guys are wonderful. Gaffey, I too had wondered about those names in the 1911 census, they do very much now ring a bell. Thank you.

If I was there I feel a pint would be in order for all of you, but due to the great distance and of course Covid-19, I'm sending you all a virtual pint and a hug instead! :) :) :) :) :) :)
