Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Bessie's family history.
Ancestor List for Bessie Gillenwater
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 Bessie 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.
Up to five generations of children and grandchildren of Bessie along with their spouses.
DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants
Designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Bessie's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Bessie gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Bessie's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited Bessie's testable 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 Bessie'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.
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."

Profile of Bessie
The central place for organizing and viewing information and sources. Whenever you see Bessie's name on WikiTree it will be linked to the profile at https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Gillenwater-58 where Gillenwater-58 is Bessie's unique WikiTree ID.
Profile Overview [independent app]
Dig into the contents of WikiTree profiles in a completely different way.
Enter Gillenwater-58 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Bessie 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/Gillenwater-58/4 into your favorite social network.

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