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 Laughing Water's genealogy.

Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Laughing Water's X chromosome, also shown here.

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 Laughing Water'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 Laughing Water's connection to AJ Jacobs, the organizer of the reunion.
