Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Orvil's family history.
Ancestor List for Orvil Barnes
This page isn't linked because it contains more private information than the tree view above. You need to be on Orvil's Trusted List to access it. Please login.
Ancestor Explorer [independent app]
View or download a list of up to 20 generations of ancestors who meet a wide variety of criteria, map them, and more.
Compact Family Tree
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.
How many degrees of separation are between Orvil and Henry VIII (or anyone else)? 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.
Up to five generations of children and grandchildren of Orvil along with their spouses.
DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants
Designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Orvil's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Orvil gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Orvil's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active for privacy reasons.
DNA Ancestor Confirmation Aid
A step beyond the DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants views. The ambitious goal: scientific confirmation of each parent-child relationship in Orvil's 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.
Dynamic Tree by Topola [independent app]
Advanced visualization tools plus downloading and printing capabilities.
Family Group Sheet
Simple page to illustrate nuclear families based on marriages. Handy when someone had children from more than one marriage. Orvil's Family Group Sheet is not linked for privacy reasons.
Flexible tool for viewing more ancestors and/or descendants on one page than anywhere else on WikiTree.
Fan Chart [independent app]
Lots of options for display, color, and sharing, including DNA inheritance, print with PDF, and other views such as "Fractal H-Trees" and "Relative SpiderWebs."
Images of Orvil
There aren't any photographs or source images for Orvil yet. Please contact the profile managers if you have any.
Index of Barness
Shows all the Barness on WikiTree. Useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Orvil. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Barnes DNA Connections and BARNES G2G.
Parallel to the pedigree chart above but optimized for printing. Can be used as a fill-in-the-blanks form. It is not linked here because it contains private information.
Profile of Orvil
The central place for organizing and viewing information and sources. Whenever you see Orvil's name on WikiTree it will be linked to the profile at https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Barnes-9713 where Barnes-9713 is Orvil's unique WikiTree ID. Since the profile is private you would see significantly more information if you login and join the Trusted List.
Profile Overview [independent app]
Dig into the contents of WikiTree profiles in a completely different way.
Enter Barnes-9713 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Orvil 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/Barnes-9713/4 into your favorite social network.
A quick reference sheet with seven generations of Orvil's family names.

Orvil'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 Barnes surname index, etc. The yellow dot for Orvil indicates that his profile is Private with a Public Biography and Family Tree. Only the profile manager can edit this setting.
Tests of Orvil's DNA
If Orvil'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 Orvil'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 Orvil's Trusted List.
Here are ways to connect and communicate with genealogists regarding Orvil's profile, especially if you're unable to collaborate directly using the WikiTree Tools above.
Comment on Profile Message Board
Orvil'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 Orvil. Profile managers are alerted to new comments via email, everyone on the Trusted List will see a notice about it in their activity feeds, and people who visit Orvil'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 Orvil 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 Orvil'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.

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 Orvil's information on WikiTree. This is especially important since the profile is private. You will need to login first.
