Hi again, I didn't locate him in land grant database, so if he farmed in Manitoba it might have been as a 'hired hand' on someone else's farm.
You might try these things: a) query q winnipeg mail list for a lookup in a Henderson directory (phone book) for 1906 & 07 to see if he actually showed up in Wpg. b) post your message to an Alaska maillist and see if someone who has access to US census records or BDM records for the area can pick him off. c) keep trying the "automatedgenealogy.com" site- if he's in Canada he'll show up sooner or later on the 1906 or 1911 census returns. d) apply to Alaska vital statistics to see if married or died n Alaska. e) check out http://users.tellurian.com/freddie/helplist/ak.htmhttp://users.tellurian.com/freddie/helplist/ak.htm to see if there's a volunteer there who could help. I'm a bit stumped too because, although I know a little about searching in Canada, I don't know anything myself about searching n Alaska. Sorry I'm not much help here, Bette
