Can anybody provide information on my father-in-law's birth parents.

His name was John (Jack) Arthur Dean, from Oak Lake, Manitoba. He changed his name from Adrian Voncey to Jack Arthur prior to his enlistment with the military. He passed away in 1990.

We believe that he was born in 1915; and taken in by George Francis, and Anne Louisa (Brennan) Dean immediately thereafter; out on a farm close to Oak Lake, Manitoba.

George and Anne also adopted another boy, William Algeron, who would have been born in 1888, but adopted in 1895.

After the war, he opened his own garage in Oak Lake. 

 Thank you.
