Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Lydia's family history.
Ancestor List for Lydia (Longley) Farnsworth
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.
This shows up to five generations of children and grandchildren of Lydia along with their spouses.
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 Lydia's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Lydia gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Lydia's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited Lydia's testable 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 Lydia's tree. This is still fairly complex. WikiTree is working on tools that will make it simpler.
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.
Global Family Tree Connection
How many degrees of separation are between Lydia 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.

Index of Longleys
This page shows all the Longleys on WikiTree. It's useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Lydia. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Longley DNA Connections and LONGLEY G2G.
Here are quick links to mapping websites:
Birth: Groton, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States on Google Maps | Open Street Map.
Death: Groton, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States on Google Maps | Open Street Map.
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 Lydia
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 Lydia's name on WikiTree (and ideally, elsewhere on the Internet!) it will be linked to the profile at http://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Longley-1 where Longley-1 is Lydia's unique WikiTree ID.
Enter Longley-1 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Lydia 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 Lydia that is designed for sharing on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, etc. Copy and paste the URL http://www.WikiTree.com/treewidget/Longley-1/4 into your favorite social network.
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of Lydia's family names. Many members share its URL http://www.WikiTree.com/treewidget/Longley-1/10 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 Lydia's family history.
Here you can view the additions and changes that WikiTree members have made to Lydia's profile so far.
Edit Profile and Relationships
Lydia'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 Longley surname index, etc. The white dot for Lydia indicates that her profile is Open. Only the profile manager can edit this setting.
Tests of Lydia's DNA
If Lydia'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 Lydia'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 Lydia's Trusted List.
This shows you the WikiTree members who have full power to access and edit Lydia's information. Use it to see who else shares your interest in Lydia and receives updates about changes to the profile. The Relationship Finder icon links next their names will show you their relationship to Lydia.
Here are ways to connect and communicate with genealogists regarding Lydia's profile, especially if you're unable to collaborate directly using the WikiTree Tools above.
