Genealogy Research

Ancestor List for Thomas Jefferson 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 Thomas 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 Thomas's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Thomas gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Thomas's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited Thomas'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 Thomas's tree. This is still fairly complex. WikiTree is working on tools that will make it simpler.

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.

Global Family Tree Connection
How many degrees of separation are between Thomas 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 Thomas photos
Here are photographs and source images for Thomas. Please contact the profile managers if you have any to add.

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

Relationship Finder Find Relationship
Enter Jefferson-1 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Thomas 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.
