Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Varina's family history.
Ancestor List for Varina Davis
Uses the "ahnen" numbering system and presents seven generations in plain text.
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 Varina 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 Varina's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Varina gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Varina's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active because Varina has no children. It may still be possible to test connections to Varina by testing other descendants of her ancestors who inherited the same 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 Varina'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.
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."
Index of Daviss
Shows all the Daviss on WikiTree. Useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Varina. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Davis DNA Connections and DAVIS G2G.
Location Maps [independent apps]
Here are quick links to mapping websites:
Birth: Richmond, Richmond, Virginia, USA on Google Maps | Open Street Map.

WikiTree+'s Map Navigator can plot Varina's ancestors or descendants on a map.

Profile of Varina
The central place for organizing and viewing information and sources. Whenever you see Varina's name on WikiTree it will be linked to the profile at https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Davis-8 where Davis-8 is Varina's unique WikiTree ID.
Profile Overview [independent app]
Dig into the contents of WikiTree profiles in a completely different way.
Enter Davis-8 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Varina 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/Davis-8/4 into your favorite social network.

Tests of Varina's DNA
If Varina'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 Varina'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 Varina's Trusted List.
