Should I continue the family name tree before my great grandfather who was adopted and we have no records of his birth?

Obviously, the bloodline is done but I have traced the family name back to 1629.

That contributes to your culture, if not your genetics, so it is worth knowing to some degree, and if you have the information it can also be helpful to others.

This page is probably helpful: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Non-Biological

You get to that setting when you click "Edit" on your great-grandparent's profile, and on the right it will show Mother and Father, with options for them.  You can do this after entering his legal parents.

Unfortunately WikiTree doesn't have a way of tracking multiple sets of parents, so if you ever do find his biologic parents, you'll have to handle that with a note in the bio section.
If you want to, why not?

Yes, please continue your tree(s).  There is a template to show both birth and adopted parents.
