Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Bertha's family history.
Ancestor List for Bertha (Austin) Pirtle
This page is empty. Do you know who Bertha's parents were? Please contact profile managers.
This shows up to five generations of children and grandchildren of Bertha along with their spouses.
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 Bertha's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Bertha gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Bertha's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited Bertha's testable 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 Bertha's tree. This is still fairly complex but it's getting simpler every day.
Family Group Sheet
This simple page illustrates nuclear families based on marriages. It's handy when someone had children from more than one marriage.
This flexible tool enables you to see more ancestors and/or descendants on one page than anywhere else on WikiTree.
Global Family Tree Connection
How many degrees of separation are between Bertha and Henry VIII? This Connection Finder includes relationships through marriage, so it is not a genealogical cousin calculator like our Relationship Finder, but it's a fun way to illustrate how closely we're all connected.
Images of Bertha
There aren't any photographs or source images for Bertha yet. Please contact the profile managers if you have any.
Index of Austins
This page shows all the Austins on WikiTree. It's useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Bertha. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Austin DNA Connections and AUSTIN G2G.
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 Bertha
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 Bertha's name on WikiTree (and ideally, elsewhere on the Internet!) it will be linked to the profile at https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Austin-3 where Austin-3 is Bertha's unique WikiTree ID.
Enter Austin-3 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Bertha 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. See the Relationship Finder Quick Links to check for relationships to US presidents, Mayflower passengers, Magna Carta Sureties and more.
Share Tree on Facebook
Download and share an attractive family tree image. This is a great way to elicit information and photo sharing from family and old friends. You might be surprised at who replies. The "Wikid Shareable Tree" is another option. You can just copy and paste the URL https://www.WikiTree.com/treewidget/Austin-3/4 into your favorite social network.
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of Bertha's family names. Many members share its URL https://www.WikiTree.com/treewidget/Austin-3/10 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 Bertha's family history.
Here you can view the additions and changes that WikiTree members have made to Bertha's profile so far.
Edit Profile and Relationships
Bertha'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 Austin surname index, etc. The green dot for Bertha indicates that her profile is Public. Only the profile manager can edit this setting.
Tests of Bertha's DNA
If Bertha'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 Bertha'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 Bertha's Trusted List.
This shows you the WikiTree members who have full power to access and edit Bertha's information. Use it to see who else shares your interest in Bertha and receives updates about changes to the profile. The Relationship Finder icon links next their names will show you their relationship to Bertha.
Here are ways to connect and communicate with genealogists regarding Bertha's profile, especially if you're unable to collaborate directly using the WikiTree Tools above.
Comment on Profile Message Board
Bertha'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 Bertha. 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 Bertha'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 Bertha or scans of vintage postcards. An e-card can be a great way to tell a genealogist or family member about what's here.
