Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Gertrude's family history.
Ancestor List for Gertrude Wiechens
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.
Since Gertrude 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
Genetic genealogy is the new frontier. Our two DNA views are designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Gertrude's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Gertrude gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Gertrude's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active because Gertrude has no children. It may still be possible to test connections to Gertrude by testing other descendants of her ancestors who inherited the same X chromosome or mitochondrial 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 Gertrude'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. 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 Gertrude'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 Gertrude
There aren't any photographs or source images for Gertrude yet. Please contact the profile managers if you have any.
Index of Wiechenss
This page shows all the Wiechenss on WikiTree. It's useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Gertrude. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Wiechens DNA Connections and WIECHENS G2G.
Here are quick links to mapping websites:
Birth: St. Peters,St. Charles,MO on Google Maps | Open Street Map.
Marriage: St. Peters,St. Charles,MO on Google Maps | Open Street Map.
Death: St. Peters,St. Charles,MO on Google Maps | Open Street Map.
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 Gertrude
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 Gertrude's name on WikiTree (and ideally, elsewhere on the Internet!) it will be linked to the profile at http://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Wiechens-8 where Wiechens-8 is Gertrude's unique WikiTree ID.
Enter Wiechens-8 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Gertrude 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
This is a family tree page for Gertrude that is designed for sharing on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, etc. Copy and paste the URL http://www.WikiTree.com/treewidget/Wiechens-8/4 into your favorite social network.
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of Gertrude's family names. Many members share its URL http://www.WikiTree.com/treewidget/Wiechens-8/10 via e-mail, e.g. with a DNA match to ask if the other person recognizes a surname.
Here are additional tools to help genealogists collaborate on WikiTree to grow Gertrude's family history.
Here you can view the additions and changes that WikiTree members have made to Gertrude's profile so far.
Edit Profile and Relationships
Gertrude's edit page is the central location for adding information and correcting mistakes. Is there anything you can add or improve upon? Since you're not logged-in yet you can't make changes directly. Contact the profile managers. Please don't go away without giving us your information and sources. Thank you!
You'll notice colored privacy icons in search results, the Wiechens surname index, etc. The green dot for Gertrude indicates that her profile is Public. Only the profile manager can edit this setting.
Tests of Gertrude's DNA
If Gertrude's DNA (not a family member's or descendant's DNA) has been tested for genealogical purposes the test or tests should be selected here. This will automatically create connections on the profiles of Gertrude's relatives where the test may be useful for confirming relationships. It's very valuable for advanced genealogy. To add tests you need to be on Gertrude's Trusted List.
This shows you the WikiTree members who have full power to access and edit Gertrude's information. Use it to see who else shares your interest in Gertrude and receives updates about changes to the profile. The Relationship Finder icon links next their names will show you their relationship to Gertrude.
Here are ways to connect and communicate with genealogists regarding Gertrude's profile, especially if you're unable to collaborate directly using the WikiTree Tools above.
Comment on Profile Message Board
Gertrude's profile, like all WikiTree profiles, has a section for public comments. This is the best place to put anything you'd like seen by all genealogists who are interested in Gertrude. Profile managers are alerted to new comments via e-mail, everyone on the Trusted List will see a notice about it in their activity feeds, and people who visit Gertrude's profile in the future will see your comment. You will need to login to post.
Any image uploaded to WikiTree can be sent as a free e-card, including photos of Gertrude or scans of vintage postcards. An e-card can be a great way to tell a genealogist or family member about what's here.
Private Message — Directly Contact Profile Manager
Here you can send a private message to a Wiki Genealogist managing Gertrude's profile. If there are multiple managers or genealogists involved, you will need to send separate messages. Unless your information is sensitive it's better to post a public comment. Login to post.
Trusted List Request Form
If you're a family member or descendant please join the Trusted List. This will you give you full access to view, follow, and edit Gertrude's information on WikiTree. You will need to login first.
If you have sourced information about Gertrude, the WikiTree community thanks you in advance for not leaving here without sharing it. :-) We are on a mission to connect the human family on one free yet reliable and privacy-controlled tree. Although we will never be finished, we make amazing progress every day because tens of thousands of good genealogists are willing to help.
