Good afternoon,

Hi Wesley, welcome to WikiTree!

We don't actually upload our DNA at WikiTree. We provide our testing details so that we can compare and find matches with other members. Your DNA will show for about 5 generations back on ancestor profiles.

A lot of our members use GEDMatch and add their GEDMatch ID's to the information for the kit they have added to WikiTree. That way no matter where someone tested you can use the tools at GEDMatch to run comparisons.

We do have a project that you may want to look at and talk to one of the members. They are Adoption Angels and that is the link. They will be able to tell you how best to go about getting started.

If you have any questions be sure to ask your Greeter or here in g2g. I hope that you enjoy WikiTree. smiley

Hi Wesley,

Best wishes in your search. I hope very much that you are successful in finding your father's family. I know of one case where someone was able to identify his biological father and half-siblings from DNA data - across three continents. He had never known who his father was - so, it can happen.
