Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Rick's family history.
Ancestor List for Rick Bowers
This page isn't linked because it contains more private information than the tree view above. You need to be on Rick'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 Rick 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 Rick along with their spouses.
DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants
Designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Rick's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Rick gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Rick'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 Rick'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. Rick'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 Rick
Photographs and source images for Rick. They are not linked for privacy reasons.
Index of Bowerss
Shows all the Bowerss on WikiTree. Useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Rick. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Bowers DNA Connections and BOWERS 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 Rick
The central place for organizing and viewing information and sources. Whenever you see Rick's name on WikiTree it will be linked to the profile at https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Bowers-1628 where Bowers-1628 is Rick'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 Bowers-1628 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Rick 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/Bowers-1628/4 into your favorite social network.
A quick reference sheet with seven generations of Rick's family names.
Here are additional tools to help genealogists collaborate on WikiTree to grow Rick's family history.
Here you can view the additions and changes that WikiTree members have made to Rick's profile so far. Login to access the feed. Since Rick himself is a WikiTree member there is also an activity feed showing his contributions, of which there have been 3876 to date.
Members such as Rick have badges on their profiles. Rick has 11 already. They can be a quick way for other WikiTreers to see his range of activities and achievements.
Edit Profile and Relationships
Rick'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 Bowers surname index, etc. The yellow dot for Rick indicates that his profile is Private with a Public Biography and Family Tree. Only the profile manager can edit this setting.
Tests of Rick's DNA
If Rick's DNA (not a family member'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 Rick'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 Rick's Trusted List.
Here are ways to connect and communicate with genealogists regarding Rick's profile, especially if you're unable to collaborate directly using the WikiTree Tools above.
Comment on Profile Message Board
Rick'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 Rick. 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 Rick'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 Rick 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 Rick
Since Rick is a WikiTree member you can send him a message directly and privately. You don't need to login for this.
Trusted List Request Form
If you're a family member please join the Trusted List. This will you give you full access to view, follow, and edit Rick's information on WikiTree. This is especially important since the profile is private. You will need to login first.
