Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Andrea's family history.
Ancestor List for Andrea Gaikowski
This page isn't linked because it contains more private information than the tree view above. You need to be on Andrea's Trusted List to access it. Please login.
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 Andrea 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.
This view isn't linked because it contains private information.
DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants
Designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Andrea's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Andrea gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Andrea's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active for privacy reasons.
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 Andrea'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.
Family Group Sheet
Simple page to illustrate nuclear families based on marriages. Handy when someone had children from more than one marriage. Andrea's Family Group Sheet is not linked for privacy reasons.
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."
Images of Andrea
Photographs and source images for Andrea. They are not linked for privacy reasons.
Index of Gaikowskis
Shows all the Gaikowskis on WikiTree. Useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Andrea. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Gaikowski DNA Connections and GAIKOWSKI G2G.
Parallel to the pedigree chart above but optimized for printing. Can be used as a fill-in-the-blanks form. It is not linked here because it contains private information.
Profile of Andrea
The central place for organizing and viewing information and sources. Whenever you see Andrea's name on WikiTree it will be linked to the profile at https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Gaikowski-1 where Gaikowski-1 is Andrea's unique WikiTree ID. Since the profile is private you would see significantly more information if you login and join the Trusted List.
Profile Overview [independent app]
Dig into the contents of WikiTree profiles in a completely different way.
Enter Gaikowski-1 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Andrea 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/wiki/Gaikowski-1/4 into your favorite social network.
A quick reference sheet with seven generations of Andrea's family names.
Here are additional tools to help genealogists collaborate on WikiTree to grow Andrea's family history.
Here you can view the additions and changes that WikiTree members have made to Andrea's profile so far. Login to access the feed. Since Andrea herself is a WikiTree member there is also an activity feed showing her contributions, of which there have been 35 to date.
Members such as Andrea have badges on their profiles. Andrea has 6 already. They can be a quick way for other WikiTreers to see her range of activities and achievements.
Edit Profile and Relationships
Andrea's edit page is the central location for adding information and correcting mistakes. Is there anything you can add or improve upon? Since you're not logged-in yet you can't make changes directly. Contact the profile managers. Please don't go away without giving us your information and sources. Thank you!
You'll notice colored privacy icons in search results, the Gaikowski surname index, etc. The yellow dot for Andrea indicates that her profile is Private with a Public Biography and Family Tree. Only the profile manager can edit this setting.
Tests of Andrea's DNA
If Andrea's DNA (not a family member'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 Andrea'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 Andrea's Trusted List.
Here are ways to connect and communicate with genealogists regarding Andrea's profile, especially if you're unable to collaborate directly using the WikiTree Tools above.
Comment on Profile Message Board
Andrea's profile, like all WikiTree profiles, has a section for public comments. This is the best place to put anything you'd like seen by all genealogists who are interested in Andrea. Profile managers are alerted to new comments via email, everyone on the Trusted List will see a notice about it in their activity feeds, and people who visit Andrea's profile in the future will see your comment. You will need to login to post.
Any image uploaded to WikiTree can be sent as a free e-card, including photos of Andrea or scans of vintage postcards. An e-card can be a great way to tell a genealogist or family member about what's here.
Private Message — Directly Contact Andrea
Since Andrea is a WikiTree member you can send her a message directly and privately. You don't need to login for this.
Trusted List Request Form
If you're a family member please join the Trusted List. This will you give you full access to view, follow, and edit Andrea's information on WikiTree. This is especially important since the profile is private. You will need to login first.
