The following is for genealogists with an interest in James's family history.
Ancestor List for James Gilliland
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 James 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 James's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom James gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for James's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active because James has no children. It may still be possible to test connections to James 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 James's tree. This is still fairly complex. WikiTree is working on tools that will make it simpler.
Family Group Sheet
This page illustrates nuclear families based on marriages. It's especially handy when someone had children from more than one marriage. It may not be useful here unless you add a spouse.
Global Family Reunion Connection
This is a special tool associated with the Global Family Reunion being planned for this June. It enables you to see James's connection to AJ Jacobs, the organizer of the reunion. Note that the Connection Finder includes relationships through marriage, so it is not a genealogical cousin calculator like our Relationship Finder.

Index of Gillilands
This page shows all the Gillilands on WikiTree. It's useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond James. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Gilliland DNA Connections and GILLILAND G2G.
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 James
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 James's name on WikiTree (and ideally, elsewhere on the Internet!) it will be linked to the profile at http://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Gilliland-226 where Gilliland-226 is James's unique WikiTree ID.
Enter Gilliland-226 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between James 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 James that is designed for sharing on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, etc. Copy and paste the URL http://www.WikiTree.com/treewidget/Gilliland-226/4 into your favorite social network.
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of James's family names. Many members share its URL http://www.WikiTree.com/treewidget/Gilliland-226/10 via e-mail, e.g. with a DNA match to ask if the other person recognizes a surname.
Here are additional tools to help genealogists collaborate on WikiTree to grow James's family history.
Here you can view the additions and changes that WikiTree members have made to James's profile so far.
Edit Profile and Relationships
James's edit page is the central location for adding information and correcting mistakes. Is there anything you can add or improve upon? Since you're not logged-in yet you can't make changes directly. Contact the profile managers. Please don't go away without giving us your information and sources. Thank you!
You'll notice colored privacy icons in search results, the Gilliland surname index, etc. The white dot for James indicates that his profile is Open. Only the profile manager can edit this setting.
Tests of James's DNA
If James'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 James'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 James's Trusted List.
This shows you the WikiTree members who have full power to access and edit James's information. Use it to see who else shares your interest in James and receives updates about changes to the profile. The Relationship Finder icon links next their names will show you their relationship to James.
Here are ways to connect and communicate with genealogists regarding James's profile, especially if you're unable to collaborate directly using the WikiTree Tools above.
Comment on Profile Message Board
James's profile, like all WikiTree profiles, has a section for public comments. This is the best place to put anything you'd like seen by all genealogists who are interested in James. Profile managers are alerted to new comments via e-mail, everyone on the Trusted List will see a notice about it in their activity feeds, and people who visit James's profile in the future will see your comment. You will need to login to post.
Any image uploaded to WikiTree can be sent as a free e-card, including photos of James or scans of vintage postcards. An e-card can be a great way to tell a genealogist or family member about what's here.
Private Message Not Possible — Direct Contact Unavailable
