I saw your post and wonder if it wouldn't be a good idea to track down the siblings of your Mother. If there were brothers or sisters they might know about the events surrounding the marriage of your Mother and your birth. I know it is a long shot but it is possible that the story was passed down in some way from your Mother's siblings to their children. I also wonder if getting your adoption records might shed some light on why you were given up for adoption. If your Mother's parents or her husband's parents were still alive they might have some knowledge. Too bad the writing isn't clear for the picture but maybe somebody may recognize his face or find it in an old high school year book if he was from Winnipeg. I wish you luck.
