Ancestor List for Edison Belt ahnenlist
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.

Descendants descendants
Since Edison 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 DNA view
Genetic genealogy is the new frontier. Our two DNA views are designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Edison's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Edison gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Edison's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active because Edison has no children. It may still be possible to test connections to Edison by testing other descendants of her ancestors who inherited the same X chromosome or mitochondrial DNA.

DNA Ancestor Confirmation Aid check mark
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 Edison's tree. This is still fairly complex but it's getting simpler every day.

Dynamic 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
An independent app with advanced visualization tools plus downloading and printing capabilities.

Family Group Sheet 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 a spouse.

Family List
This flexible tool enables you to see more ancestors and/or descendants on one page than anywhere else on WikiTree.

Fan Chart
An independent app with 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 Edison 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 Edison photos
There aren't any photographs or source images for Edison yet. Login to upload one.

Index of Belts
This page shows all the Belts on WikiTree. It's useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Edison. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Belt DNA Connections and BELT G2G.

Enter Belt-59 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Edison 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.

Research with RootsSearch
Automatically search for Edison on more than 20 different genealogy websites with the RootsSearch app.

Share Tree on Facebook shareable tree
