Ancestor List for Nellie (Blakeney) Carpenter

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 Nellie 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 Nellie along with their spouses.
DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants
Designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Nellie's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Nellie gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Nellie's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited Nellie's testable DNA.
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 Nellie'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.

Flexible tool for viewing more ancestors and/or descendants on one page than anywhere else on WikiTree.

Share Tree on Facebook
