Melissa, you can check the Adoption Angels Project for ways to set up your profile. You may want to link the father that raised you in your biography.

Hi Melissa, are you saying you added the wrong man as your father? Or just that the man that raised you is not your biological father?

If the wrong man, then you go to the edit page of your profile. Down the right hand side you will see ‘edit father’ click and then click remove.

If he is the man that raised you, you can go to edit and mark him non-biological.

Don’t forget to save for either edit.

When you find your biological father you can add him and mark him confident.

Hi Melissa, here on Wikitree we almost never erase anyone. Even if the man turned out not to be your father, he was still a person who existed. All you have to do is edit your relationship and remove him as your father. If he was your mother's husband, you can leave their relationship as spouses intact.
