Genealogy Research

Ancestor List for Lester Eugene Onken 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.

Descendants descendants
Since Lester Eugene has no children the descendants page isn't available. Do you know of children? Please let the profile managers know.

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 Lester Eugene's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Lester Eugene gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Lester Eugene's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active because Lester Eugene has no children. It may still be possible to test connections to Lester Eugene by testing other descendants of his ancestors who inherited the same Y chromosome, X chromosome or mitochondrial 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 Lester Eugene's tree. This is still fairly complex but it's getting simpler every day.

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. It may not be useful here unless you add a spouse.

Family List
This flexible tool enables you to see more ancestors and/or descendants on one page than anywhere else on WikiTree.

How many degrees of separation are between Lester Eugene 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.
