Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Benjamin's family history.
Ancestor List for Benjamin Bivens
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.
Since Benjamin has no children the descendants page isn't available. Do you know of children? Please let the profile managers know.
DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants
Genetic genealogy is the new frontier. Our two DNA views are designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Benjamin's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Benjamin gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Benjamin's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active because Benjamin has no children. It may still be possible to test connections to Benjamin by testing other descendants of his ancestors who inherited the same Y chromosome, X chromosome or mitochondrial DNA.
DNA Ancestor Confirmation Aid
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 Benjamin's tree. This is still fairly complex but it's getting simpler every day.
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
This simple page illustrates nuclear families based on marriages. It's handy when someone had children from more than one marriage. It may not be useful here unless you add a spouse.
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 Benjamin 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.

This view parallels the pedigree chart above but it is optimized for printing. It can be used as a fill-in-the-blanks form at a family gathering.
Profile of Benjamin
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 Benjamin's name on WikiTree (and ideally, elsewhere on the Internet!) it will be linked to the profile at http://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Bivens-83 where Bivens-83 is Benjamin's unique WikiTree ID.
Enter Bivens-83 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Benjamin 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.
Shareable Family Tree
This is a family tree page for Benjamin that is designed for sharing on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, etc. Copy and paste the URL http://www.WikiTree.com/treewidget/Bivens-83/4 into your favorite social network.
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of Benjamin's family names. Many members share its URL http://www.WikiTree.com/treewidget/Bivens-83/10 via e-mail, e.g. with a DNA match to ask if the other person recognizes a surname.

Tests of Benjamin's DNA
If Benjamin's DNA (not a family member's or descendant's DNA) has been tested for genealogical purposes the test or tests should be selected here. This will automatically create connections on the profiles of Benjamin's relatives where the test may be useful for confirming relationships. It's very valuable for advanced genealogy.
