Genealogy Research

Ancestor List for Jim Howes ahnenlist
This page isn't linked because it contains more private information than the tree view above. You need to be on Jim's Trusted List to access it. Please login.

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
This view isn't linked because it contains private information.

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 Jim's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Jim gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Jim's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active for privacy reasons.

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 Jim's tree. This is still fairly complex. WikiTree is working on tools that will make it simpler.

Family Group Sheet family group sheet
This page illustrates nuclear families based on marriages. It's especially handy when someone had children from more than one marriage. Jim's Family Group Sheet is not linked for privacy reasons.

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 Jim'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.

Images of Jim photos
Here are photographs and source images for Jim. They are not linked for privacy reasons.

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

Printer-Friendly Tree printable tree
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. It is not linked here because it contains private information.

Profile of Jim
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 Jim's name on WikiTree (and ideally, elsewhere on the Internet!) it will be linked to the profile at http://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Howes-2 where Howes-2 is Jim's unique WikiTree ID. Since the profile is private you would see significantly more information if you login and join the Trusted List.

Relationship Finder Find Relationship
Enter Howes-2 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Jim 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 Jim that is designed for sharing on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, etc. Copy and paste the URL http://www.WikiTree.com/treewidget/Howes-2/4 into your favorite social network.

Surnames surnames
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of Jim's family names. Many members share its URL http://www.WikiTree.com/treewidget/Howes-2/10 via e-mail, e.g. with a DNA match to ask if the other person recognizes a surname.

Contact the profile managers. Please don't go away without giving us your information and sources. Thank you!

Privacy Setting privacy
You'll notice colored privacy icons in search results, the Howes surname index, etc. The light-orange/peach colored dot for Jim indicates that his profile is Private with a Public Family Tree. Only the profile manager can edit this setting.

Tests of Jim's DNA
If Jim'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 Jim'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 Jim's Trusted List.
