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