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

Genealogy Research

Ancestor List for Charles Spencer 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 Charles 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 Charles's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Charles gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Charles's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited Charles'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 Charles'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 Charles'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 Charles photos
There aren't any photographs or source images for Charles yet. Login to upload one.

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

Printer-Friendly Tree printable tree
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 Charles
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 Charles's name on WikiTree (and ideally, elsewhere on the Internet!) it will be linked to the profile at where Spencer-2 is Charles's unique WikiTree ID.

Relationship Finder Find Relationship
Enter Spencer-2 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Charles 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 shareable tree
This is a family tree page for Charles that is designed for sharing on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, etc. Copy and paste the URL into your favorite social network.

Surnames surnames
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of Charles's family names. Many members share its URL via e-mail, e.g. with a DNA match to ask if the other person recognizes a surname.
