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


Genealogy Research

Ancestor List for John Brooks 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.

Descendants descendants
Since John 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 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 link isn't active because John has no children. It may still be possible to test connections to John by testing other descendants of his ancestors who inherited the same Y chromosome, X chromosome or mitochondrial 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. It may not be useful here unless you add a spouse.

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
There aren't any photographs or source images for John yet. Login to upload one.

Index of Brookss
This page shows all the Brookss 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 Brooks DNA Connections and BROOKS 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 Brooks-685 is John's unique WikiTree ID.

Relationship Finder Find Relationship
Enter Brooks-685 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.

Shareable Family Tree shareable tree
This is a family tree page for John that is designed for sharing on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, etc. Copy and paste the URL into your favorite social network.

Surnames surnames
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of John's family names. Many members share its URL via e-mail, e.g. with a DNA match to ask if the other person recognizes a surname.

Tests of John's DNA
If John'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 John's relatives where the test may be useful for confirming relationships. It's very valuable for advanced genealogy. To add tests you need to be on John's Trusted List.
