Ancestor List for Troy Franklin ahnenlist
The ancestor list uses the "ahnen" numbering system and presents seven generations in plain text. There are no images or colors. This makes it well-suited for printing when you're doing offline research.

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.

Descendants descendants
Since Troy 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
Genetic genealogy is the new frontier. Our two DNA views are designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Troy's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Troy gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Troy's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active because Troy has no children. It may still be possible to test connections to Troy 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 Troy's tree. This is still fairly complex but it's getting simpler every day.

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.

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.

Global Family Tree Connection
How many degrees of separation are between Troy and Henry VIII? 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.

Images of Troy photos
Here are photographs and source images for Troy. Please contact the profile managers if you have any to add.

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

Location Maps map pin
Here are quick links to mapping websites:
      Birth: Colorado City, Mitchell County, Texas on Google Maps | Open Street Map.
      Death: Unknown.

Printer-Friendly Tree printable tree
This view parallels the pedigree chart above but it is optimized for printing. It can be used as a fill-in-the-blanks form at a family gathering.

Profile of Troy
The profile page is the central place for organizing and viewing information and sources on an individual. This tree & tools page is a supplement to it. Whenever you see Troy's name on WikiTree (and ideally, elsewhere on the Internet!) it will be linked to the profile at https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Franklin-3619 where Franklin-3619 is Troy's unique WikiTree ID.

Relationship Finder Find Relationship
Enter Franklin-3619 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Troy 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
Automatically search for Troy on more than 20 different genealogy websites with the RootsSearch app.

Share Tree on Facebook shareable tree
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/Franklin-3619/4 into your favorite social network.

Surnames surnames
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of Troy's family names. Many members share its URL https://www.WikiTree.com/treewidget/Franklin-3619/10 via e-mail, e.g. with a DNA match to ask if the other person recognizes a surname.
