Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Perley's family history.
Ancestor List for Perley Belt
The ancestor list uses the "ahnen" numbering system and presents seven generations in plain text.
Ancestor Listmaker [independent app]
View or download a list of up to 20 generations of ancestors who meet a wide variety of criteria.
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.
This shows up to five generations of children and grandchildren of Perley along with their spouses.
DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants
Our two DNA views are designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Perley's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Perley gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Perley's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited Perley'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 Perley's tree.
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.
Dynamic Tree by Topola [independent app]
This app has advanced visualization tools plus downloading and printing capabilities.
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.
Fan Chart [independent app]
This tool has 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."
Global Family Tree Connection
How many degrees of separation are between Perley 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.

Profile of Perley
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 Perley's name on WikiTree it will be linked to the profile at https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Belt-158 where Belt-158 is Perley's unique WikiTree ID.
Enter Belt-158 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Perley 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/wiki/Belt-158/4 into your favorite social network.
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of Perley's family names. Many members share its URL https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Belt-158/10 via email, e.g. with a DNA match to ask if the other person recognizes a surname.

Tests of Perley's DNA

To add tests you need to be on Perley's Trusted List.
