My sister Mary Susan Miller was adopted after my mom passed. Do I use her adopted parents name or the last name & parents of who she was born to. I used her biological, she is my sister & has passed.

Her biological name is what WikiTree needs. You can reference her adopted parents in her biography and link to them from there.

Rosemary is right as it helps with the bio family being connected. Here's a link to the "adoption template" to help note adoptive family: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Template:Adopted_Child
