How do I list biological family and adopted family?

I listed my Adopted Family as that is all I have ever known. Now due to DNA I have discovered my biological Mother. Should I list a separate family? I am still searching for my Biological Father.

Hi Paige,

Great question.  I'm adopted and because I have also had a DNA test done and because on WikiTree you can only connect a person to one set of parents I do have a second profile for my biological self so my DNA lines can display properly.

You're welcome to look at my two profiles and see how I've chosen to proceed here.

My adopted profile:

My biological profile:

If you have any questions, feel free to send me a private message! Thanks!

Oops, missed two numbers on my biological one. It's Ramos-244.
