Helping hands helping one another with our family history & genealogy research.
I am looking for any information on Leslie Lees. Born Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, UK circa 1916 emigrated with his family to Canada 1919. Originally settled in Manitoba (Clanwilliam or Winnipeg areas). Family residing in Winnipeg - Father Archibald Lees (deceased 1959), Mother Miriam Lees (nee Knight) (deceased 1961. Siblings: Miriam (Peggy) deceased 1960, Fred and Freda (now Freda Esslement). Leslie is my late fathers cousin.
You posted this to the Saskatchewan group, but don't mention where in Saskatchewan he might have moved to.
Duncan, British Columbia, Canada
Many thanks for spotting that error.
I have reason to believe (from his mothers obituary - Winnipeg 1961) that at that time he might have lived in the Regina area.
Regards ... Les
this seems to be the last entry for L Lees:

If he were still alive he would be in his 90's, .....
I have reason to believe that Leslie is in fact still alive (aged 95). I am in contact with a nephew of his (the son of his younger sister - Freda) but have yet to confirm all of the information I have. Any extra information you come across would be appreciated. Many Thanks ... Les
Hi all, I now have reason to believe that Leslie Lees is still alive and now resides in the Toronto region, near some of his family. Obvioulsy I will have to follow this up.
