I was born a Keith and was adopted into a Morrison family. How can I get Keith to come up in my comparisons or can I ,without creating a new profile?

As Brian said, you would need to change the Last Name At Birth to Keith, by using the edit function beside the Last Name At Birth field.

You can also add the adoption template, so you can be linked to both sets of parents (if all are known).

Thank You
Not relevant to your question, but I had a paternal grandmother who was a Keith and a maternal great-grandfather who was a Morrison.

Just use Keith under the "Last Name at Birth" and use Morrison under the "Current Last Name".

This way it'll reflect that you were born Keith and are currently Morrison.

I hope I had explained this okay via text... :-)
