Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Edward's family history.
Ancestor List for Edward Blankenship
This page is empty. Do you know who Edward's parents were? Please contact profile managers.
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.
How many degrees of separation are between Edward 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.
DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants
Designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Edward's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Edward gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Edward'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 Edward's tree.
Family Group Sheet
Simple page to illustrate nuclear families based on marriages. Handy when someone had children from more than one marriage. Edward'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 Edward
There aren't any photographs or source images for Edward yet. Please contact the profile managers if you have any.
Index of Blankenships
Shows all the Blankenships on WikiTree. Useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Edward. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Blankenship DNA Connections and BLANKENSHIP 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 Edward
The central place for organizing and viewing information and sources. Whenever you see Edward's name on WikiTree it will be linked to the profile at https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Blankenship-359 where Blankenship-359 is Edward'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 Blankenship-359 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Edward 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/Blankenship-359/4 into your favorite social network.
A quick reference sheet with seven generations of Edward's family names.

Edit Profile and Relationships
Edward'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 Blankenship surname index, etc. The yellow dot for Edward indicates that profile is Private with a Public Biography and Family Tree. Only the profile manager can edit this setting.
Tests of Edward's DNA
If Edward'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 Edward'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 Edward's Trusted List.
Here are ways to connect and communicate with genealogists regarding Edward's profile, especially if you're unable to collaborate directly using the WikiTree Tools above.
Comment on Profile Message Board
Edward'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 Edward. 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 Edward'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 Edward 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 Edward'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.
Trusted List Request Form
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 Edward's information on WikiTree. This is especially important since the profile is private. You will need to login first.
