Peace River AB - 1965 - 1966

I'm trying to find my birth-father. I have a feeling from my research that he worked in the Peace River area late 1965/early 1966 during the oil boom in that area. My birth mother was seconded from Edmonton by AGT to work there for a period of time.

Info from CAS Non-identifying Info: BFather was born about 1941 in Alberta, both his parents were swedish and farmers. Could have been from the Westlock/Barrhead/Morinville area (but not confirmed) - seemed to be a lot of information about him and his family that only someone who knew him for a while could have known. He was about 5'-10" and 195 lbs with blonde hair and blue eyes and "a pleasant outgoing personality". Worked in the oil exploration field, was trained as a pilot (commercial?), played guitar, and bowled. Have an idea they met bowling (either in Edmonton or in Peace River) which would explain my wierd fascination with watching bowling on tv. He had one sister who was a nurse.

Sketchy info I know, but if anyone has any info on Peace River oil exploration, or flying clubs near there and Edmonton, or the western oil exploration industry at that time I'd appreciate it.
