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.

This shows up to five generations of children and grandchildren of Nancy along with their spouses.

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 Nancy's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Nancy gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Nancy's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited Nancy's testable DNA.

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.
