Ancestor List for Ken Hess ahnenlist
This page isn't linked because it contains more private information than the tree view above. You need to be on Ken's Trusted List to access it. Please login.

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.

Descendants descendants
This view isn't linked because it contains private information.

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 Ken's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Ken gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Ken's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active for privacy reasons.

DNA Ancestor Confirmation Aid check mark
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 Ken's tree. This is still fairly complex but it's getting simpler every day.

Dynamic 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.

Family Group Sheet family group sheet
This simple page illustrates nuclear families based on marriages. It's handy when someone had children from more than one marriage. Ken's Family Group Sheet is not linked for privacy reasons.

Family List
This flexible tool enables you to see more ancestors and/or descendants on one page than anywhere else on WikiTree.

Global Family Tree Connection
How many degrees of separation are between Ken and Henry VIII? 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.

Images of Ken photos
Here are photographs and source images for Ken. They are not linked for privacy reasons.

Index of Hesss
This page shows all the Hesss on WikiTree. It's useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Ken. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Hess DNA Connections and HESS G2G.

Printer-Friendly Tree printable tree
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. It is not linked here because it contains private information.

Profile of Ken
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 Ken's name on WikiTree (and ideally, elsewhere on the Internet!) it will be linked to the profile at where Hess-682 is Ken's unique WikiTree ID. Since the profile is private you would see significantly more information if you login and join the Trusted List.

Relationship Finder Find Relationship
Enter Hess-682 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Ken 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 shareable tree
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 into your favorite social network.

Surnames surnames
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of Ken's family names. Many members share its URL via e-mail, e.g. with a DNA match to ask if the other person recognizes a surname.

WikiTree Tools

Here are additional tools to help genealogists collaborate on WikiTree to grow Ken's family history.

Family Tree Widgets family tree widgets
If you're a blogger who's writing a post about Ken or have a Hess family website or surname website you can include one of these widgets to illustrate his tree.

Privacy Setting privacy
You'll notice colored privacy icons in search results, the Hess surname index, etc. The yellow dot for Ken indicates that his profile is Private with a Public Biography and Family Tree. Only the profile manager can edit this setting.

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


Here are ways to connect and communicate with genealogists regarding Ken's profile, especially if you're unable to collaborate directly using the WikiTree Tools above.

Ask a Question about Hesss
WikiTree's Genealogist-to-Genealogist (G2G) Forum is where genealogists help each other. If you have a question about the Hess family or surname and would like to seek help from the wider community — not just Ken's friends and family — post it here.  

Comment on Profile Message Board
Ken'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 Ken. Profile managers are alerted to new comments via e-mail, everyone on the Trusted List will see a notice about it in their activity feeds, and people who visit Ken'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 Ken 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 Ken private message
Since Ken is a WikiTree member you can send him a message directly and privately. You don't need to login for this.
