Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Ælfgifu's family history.
Ancestor List for Ælfgifu (Northumbria) Wessex
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 Ælfgifu 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 Ælfgifu's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Ælfgifu gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Ælfgifu's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited Ælfgifu'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 Ælfgifu'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 Reunion Connection
This is a special tool associated with the Global Family Reunion being planned for this June. It enables you to see Ælfgifu'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 Northumbrias
This page shows all the Northumbrias on WikiTree. It's useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Ælfgifu. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Northumbria DNA Connections and NORTHUMBRIA 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 Ælfgifu
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.

Enter Northumbria-69 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Ælfgifu 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.
