Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Edgar's family history.
Ancestor List for Edgar Colburn
This page is empty. Do you know who Edgar'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 Edgar 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.
Since Edgar 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
Designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Edgar's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Edgar gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Edgar's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active because Edgar has no children. It may still be possible to test connections to Edgar by testing other descendants of his ancestors who inherited the same Y chromosome, X chromosome or mitochondrial 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 Edgar's tree.
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."

Profile Overview [independent app]
Dig into the contents of WikiTree profiles in a completely different way.
Enter Colburn-1 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Edgar 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/Colburn-1/4 into your favorite social network.
