Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in May's family history.
Ancestor List for May (Grant) Danes
The ancestor list uses the "ahnen" numbering system and presents seven generations in plain text.
Ancestor Listmaker [independent app]
View or download a list of up to 20 generations of ancestors who meet a wide variety of criteria.
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.
How many degrees of separation are between May 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.
Since May 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
Our two DNA views are designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand May's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom May gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for May's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active because May has no children. It may still be possible to test connections to May by testing other descendants of her ancestors who inherited the same X chromosome or mitochondrial DNA.
DNA Ancestor Confirmation Aid
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 May's 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.
Dynamic Tree by Topola [independent app]
This app has advanced visualization tools plus downloading and printing capabilities.
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 children.
This flexible tool enables you to see more ancestors and/or descendants on one page than anywhere else on WikiTree.
Fan Chart [independent app]
This tool has 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."

Index of Grants
This page shows all the Grants on WikiTree. It's useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond May. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Grant DNA Connections and GRANT G2G.
Location Maps [independent apps]
Here are quick links to mapping websites:
Birth: New York, NY on Google Maps | Open Street Map.
WikiTree+'s Map Navigator can plot May's ancestors or descendants on a map.
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 May
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 May's name on WikiTree it will be linked to the profile at https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Grant-26 where Grant-26 is May's unique WikiTree ID.
Enter Grant-26 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between May 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/Grant-26/4 into your favorite social network.
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of May's family names. Many members share its URL https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Grant-26/10 via email, e.g. with a DNA match to ask if the other person recognizes a surname.
Here are additional tools to help genealogists collaborate on WikiTree to grow May's family history.
Here you can view the additions and changes that WikiTree members have made to May's profile so far.
Edit Profile and Relationships
May'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 Grant surname index, etc. The white dot for May indicates that her profile is Open. Only the profile manager can edit this setting.
Tests of May's DNA
If May'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 May'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 May's Trusted List.
This shows you the WikiTree members who have full power to access and edit May's information. Use it to see who else shares your interest in May and receives updates about changes to the profile. The Relationship Finder icon links next their names will show you their relationship to May.
Here are ways to connect and communicate with genealogists regarding May's profile, especially if you're unable to collaborate directly using the WikiTree Tools above.
Comment on Profile Message Board
May'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 May. 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 May'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 May or scans of vintage postcards. An e-card can be a great way to tell a genealogist or family member about what's here.
