I am looking for a danish relative of mine, Hans Christian Mathiesen (my grandmother's father's brother). He waw born October 27 1901 in Hellested parish, Pręstų county, Denmark. Son of Niels Julius Mathiesen and Ane Sofie Pedersen. The latest news I have is that he was being confirmated (in church) Okt 10 1915 in Store Heddinge, same county.

My grandmother is the daughter of his much younger brother from 1917, so she does not remember Hans Christian, but she knows that he travelled to Canada to find work, came back for his wife in Denmark and then made a home in Canada. It must be around 1920-1935, but it's hard to say. Can anyone help me locate him?
