The following is for genealogists with an interest in Herbert's family history.

Genealogy Research

Ancestor List for Herbert Maxwell 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 Herbert 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 Herbert's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Herbert gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Herbert's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited Herbert'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 Herbert'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.

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 Herbert'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 Herbert photos

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