I accidentally discovered at age 18 that I had been adopted. My eventual search for biological roots spanned decades and was completely solved through genetic genealogy DNA testing. My story is told in my memoir, "Finding Family: My Search for Roots and the Secrets in My DNA," which is available on Amazon.com. 
Have you taken a DNA test? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Ancestry DNA.

I noted you uploaded a GEDCOM. Here's a link to a great step-by-step of the process including screenshots that you might find helpful.
Help pages give lots of info about the process, best to start with 'Before you import a GEDCOM'.
If you have brick walls, collaboration might help bust through. WikiTree has one profile for each person, so the further back you go in your ancestry, the more likely cousins will find you and help out. ANY Wiki Genealogist can edit "Open" profiles (over 200 years old).

Backwards or forwards, you are now a member of the WikiTree Community. Please note we are trying to build one Collaborative Tree which means one profile per person. It is important to ensure no duplicates are entered as you add any Profiles to WikiTree.
If you need any help getting started check out the help section from the menu, top left, and you might want to check out the introductory WikiTree video that a member created.
Our Mentor Team are a friendly bunch of volunteers who will be glad to help you with specific problems if you have any.
Good luck growing your branches, and thanks for offering to help with our shared tree :-)

Whoever said "seek and ye shall find" was NOT a genealogist!
