Ancestor List for Jefferson Davis Jr. ahnenlist
The ancestor list uses the "ahnen" numbering system and presents seven generations in plain text.

Ancestor Listmaker [independent app]
View or download a list of up to 20 generations of ancestors who meet a wide variety of criteria.

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.

How many degrees of separation are between Jefferson 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.

Descendants descendants
Since Jefferson has no children the descendants page isn't available.

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

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 [independent app]
This app has 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 ChartFan Chart [independent app]
This tool has 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 Jefferson photos

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

Map Navigator SampleLocation Maps map pin [independent apps]

Relationship Finder Find Relationship
Enter Davis-5 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Jefferson 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 [independent app]
Automatically search for Jefferson on more than 20 different genealogy websites with the RootsSearch app.

Share Tree on Facebook shareable tree

The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of Jefferson's family names. Many members share its URL via email, e.g. with a DNA match to ask if the other person recognizes a surname.
