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

Genealogy Research

Ancestor List for William Sinclair 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 William 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 William's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom William gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for William's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active because William has no children. It may still be possible to test connections to William 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 William'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. It may not be useful here unless you add children.

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 William'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 William photos

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

Profile of William
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 William's name on WikiTree (and ideally, elsewhere on the Internet!) it will be linked to the profile at where Sinclair-191 is William's unique WikiTree ID.

Relationship Finder Find Relationship
Enter Sinclair-191 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between William 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.
