Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Opal's family history.
Ancestor List for Opal Greathouse
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 Opal 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 Opal 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
Designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Opal's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Opal gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Opal's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active because Opal has no children. It may still be possible to test connections to Opal by testing other descendants of her ancestors who inherited the same X chromosome or mitochondrial 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 Opal'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.
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."

Index of Greathouses
Shows all the Greathouses on WikiTree. Useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Opal. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Greathouse DNA Connections and GREATHOUSE G2G.
Location Maps [independent apps]
Here are quick links to mapping websites:
Birth: Upshur County WV on Google Maps | Open Street Map.
Death: Upshur County WV on Google Maps | Open Street Map.
WikiTree+'s Map Navigator can plot Opal's ancestors or descendants on a map.
Parallel to the pedigree chart above but optimized for printing. Can be used as a fill-in-the-blanks form.
Profile of Opal
The central place for organizing and viewing information and sources. Whenever you see Opal's name on WikiTree it will be linked to the profile at https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Greathouse-124 where Greathouse-124 is Opal's unique WikiTree ID.
Profile Overview [independent app]
Dig into the contents of WikiTree profiles in a completely different way.
Enter Greathouse-124 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Opal 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/Greathouse-124/4 into your favorite social network.
A quick reference sheet with seven generations of Opal's family names.
Here are additional tools to help genealogists collaborate on WikiTree to grow Opal's family history.
Here you can view the additions and changes that WikiTree members have made to Opal's profile so far.
Bio Check [independent app]
Scan for missing sources and opportunities to improve profiles.
Edit Profile and Relationships
Opal'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 Greathouse surname index, etc. The white dot for Opal indicates that her profile is Open. Only the profile manager can edit this setting.
Tests of Opal's DNA
If Opal'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 Opal'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 Opal's Trusted List.
This shows you the WikiTree members who have full power to access and edit Opal's information. Use it to see who else shares your interest in Opal and receives updates about changes to the profile. The Relationship Finder icon links next their names will show you their relationship to Opal.
Here are ways to connect and communicate with genealogists regarding Opal's profile, especially if you're unable to collaborate directly using the WikiTree Tools above.
Comment on Profile Message Board
Opal'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 Opal. 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 Opal'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 Opal or scans of vintage postcards. An e-card can be a great way to tell a genealogist or family member about what's here.

Here you can send a private message to a Wiki Genealogist managing Opal's profile. If there are multiple managers or genealogists involved, you will need to send separate messages. Unless your information is sensitive it's better to post a public comment. Login to post.
