You need to enter your parents, grandparents etc and connect back to those already on Wikitree. Right now you can't check your connection with Tudor-4 until there is more information.

Another thing that you need to realize is that Geni.com is not considered a reliable source.

Hi Donald. Welcome to WikiTree.

I hope that I can help with your problem. Which presumed descendant of Henry are you trying to connect with ? None of his legitimate children had surviving issue, and I am led to believe, that his two children with Mary Boleyn have not been proved to be fathered by him.

I hope that helps.

There is no evidence that Henry VIII is the direct ancestor of anyone living. His legitimate line died out with the death of Elizabeth I. There is speculation that he was father of Henry Carey by Mary Boleyn, but it is speculation and is not proven. As far as reliable and well-sourced genealogy goes Henry VIII has no descendants.

And, added on edit: 25 generations is far too many for a direct-ancestor relationship to someone born in the late 15th century. My known and proven relationships to people born in the late 15th century (c. 1475-1495) are in the range of 15-16 generations.
