Looking for my biological father, Harry Dunkerley and family

+3 votes
I am looking for my biological father, Harry Dunkerley, born c 1921, who worked at Acme Screw and Gear in Toronto in 1943. My mother is Dorothy Wright and I was born on June 10, 1944 in Toronto.

Harry was tall, dark complexioned, of English descent and was younger than Dorothy.

If Harry was younger than Dorothy and if he was born c 1921, then Dorothy would have been born earlier, but she is said to have been born in 1944 in Toronto.
Frank, thanks for your response. Where does it say that Dorothy was born in 1944? Her son, David Wright was born on June 10, 1944 , biological son of Harry Dunkerley. Dorothy was born in 1920.
How would I do that, Jenn?
My mistake.

We are assuming that Harry would have passed as he would be nearly 100 years old.
'Nearly' means 'possibly living'.  Same goes for Dorothy.  And what about David in 1944?
