Help me to Find my Family

Query by lost_judy

I was born in Toronto and named Judith Linda Dianne Woodcock/Krupa. My parents were Doris Arleen Woodcock and Carl Krupa.
I was placed with the Toronto Protestant Childrens Aid till age 18 but never adopted out.
I would give anything to be able to find any biological relatives.
Please contact me if you have any information at all.

I am searching for my biological father whose last name is Krupa. During the 1920's he lived in Toronto and met my mother Doris.
I was born in 1949 and have learned that he had 4 siblings from another relationship prior to meeting my mother.
He was from Poland and was German and Mulatto.
Any information would be helpful.

Do you know someone who can help? Share this:

Dear Judy,
I understand your dilemma, I was adopted in 1955 in new york City. I want to suggest to you, to do a DNA autosomal test with the Lab. 23andme (they are located in California) I have been searching for my biological father since 2007, My biological mother had very little information on him. I discovered that he is Puerto Rician, this heritage comes from his mother's side of the family,he is german on his Dad's side.I couldn't believe it, but's true (I am very fair skinned and my bio-mother is Irish and german)But I have discovered so much,through the DNA testing.I still have to find my bio-father's family so I am hanging in there,nothing's done easily unfortunately.
I hope this helps,if you've any other questions,let me know.Otherwise please try "Richard Hill's DNA testing Aviser" web-site, he is an Adoptee that found his father through DNA, and he has "laymans" language about the m

Well, your welcome, was the site I pointed to of any value? Had you been their before? Let me know how you get on, maybe I wil be able to find another site for you to visit.

Sorry Judy,
Here's the end of my story to you...Richard HIll has a web-site that might interest you as he is an adoptee.He explains DNA very simply and it could help you understand certain terms and lead you to do a DNA test if you do so wish.
I hope you do the test I'm sure it will open up some doors,
Sincerely, lorrainef

Since you already know the names of your parents, you were not adopted and I assume the PCA have given you the only information they have on file; I would suggest the easiest course of action for you would be to trace Doris Arleen Woodcock. She did not nescessarily remain with Carl Krupa.
I would be inclined to look for birth, marriage and census records for her, beginning in Toronto.
