Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in John's family history.


Genealogy Research

Ancestor List for John Adams ahnenlist
The ancestor list uses the "ahnen" numbering system and presents seven generations in plain text. There are no images or colors. This makes it well-suited for printing when you're doing offline research.

Compact Family Tree
This alternative tree view is packed with eight generations — up to 254 ancestors — along with birth and death dates and locations. The downside is that it's not a conventional tree format; it may take a couple minutes to orient yourself.

Descendant List descendants
This shows up to five generations of children and grandchildren of John along with their spouses.

DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants DNA view
Genetic genealogy is the new frontier. Our two DNA views are designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand John's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom John gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for John's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited John's testable DNA.

DNA Ancestor Confirmation Aid check mark
This tool helps you take things a step beyond the DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants views. The ambitious goal: scientific confirmation of each parent-child relationship in John's tree. This is still fairly complex but it's getting simpler every day.

Dynamic Tree
The dynamic tree expands to include an unlimited number of generations of parents and children. You can zoom in or out and pan around for the perfect view as you browse.

Family Group Sheet family group sheet
This simple page illustrates nuclear families based on marriages. It's handy when someone had children from more than one marriage.

Family List
This flexible tool enables you to see more ancestors and/or descendants on one page than anywhere else on WikiTree.

Global Family Tree Connection
How many degrees of separation are between John and Kevin Bacon? This Connection Finder includes relationships through marriage, so it is not a genealogical cousin calculator like our Relationship Finder, but it's a fun way to illustrate how closely we're all connected.

Images of John photos
Here are photographs and source images for John. Please contact the profile managers if you have any to add.

Index of Adamss
This page shows all the Adamss on WikiTree. It's useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond John. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Adams DNA Connections and ADAMS G2G.

Profile of John
The profile page is the central place for organizing and viewing information and sources on an individual. This tree & tools page is a supplement to it. Whenever you see John's name on WikiTree (and ideally, elsewhere on the Internet!) it will be linked to the profile at where Adams-10 is John's unique WikiTree ID.

Relationship Finder Find Relationship
Enter Adams-10 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between John and the other person. It will name the relationship, e.g. "third cousin twice removed," and show the trail of connections to a common ancestor. Although not everyone on WikiTree shares common ancestors, finding and connecting them is our ultimate goal.
