Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Penelope's family history.
Ancestor List for Penelope (Horton) Swayze
The ancestor list uses the "ahnen" numbering system and presents seven generations in plain text. There are no images or colors. This makes it well-suited for printing when you're doing offline research.
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.
This shows up to five generations of children and grandchildren of Penelope along with their spouses.
DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants
Genetic genealogy is the new frontier. Our two DNA views are designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Penelope's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Penelope gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Penelope's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited Penelope's testable 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 Penelope's tree. This is still fairly complex but it's getting simpler every day.
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
This simple page illustrates nuclear families based on marriages. It's handy when someone had children from more than one marriage.
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 Penelope 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.

Index of Hortons
This page shows all the Hortons on WikiTree. It's useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Penelope. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Horton DNA Connections and HORTON G2G.
Here are quick links to mapping websites:
Birth: Southold, Suffolk Co., New York on Google Maps | Open Street Map.
Marriage: Southhold, Suffolk, New York on Google Maps | Open Street Map.
Death: Roxbury, Morris Co., NJ on Google Maps | Open Street 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 Penelope
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 Penelope's name on WikiTree (and ideally, elsewhere on the Internet!) it will be linked to the profile at https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Horton-271 where Horton-271 is Penelope's unique WikiTree ID.
Enter Horton-271 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Penelope 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/Horton-271/4 into your favorite social network.
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of Penelope's family names. Many members share its URL https://www.WikiTree.com/treewidget/Horton-271/10 via e-mail, 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 Penelope's family history.
Here you can view the additions and changes that WikiTree members have made to Penelope's profile so far.
Edit Profile and Relationships
Penelope'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 Horton surname index, etc. The white dot for Penelope indicates that her profile is Open. Only the profile manager can edit this setting.
Tests of Penelope's DNA
If Penelope'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 Penelope'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 Penelope's Trusted List.
This shows you the WikiTree members who have full power to access and edit Penelope's information. Use it to see who else shares your interest in Penelope and receives updates about changes to the profile. The Relationship Finder icon links next their names will show you their relationship to Penelope.
Here are ways to connect and communicate with genealogists regarding Penelope's profile, especially if you're unable to collaborate directly using the WikiTree Tools above.
Comment on Profile Message Board
Penelope'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 Penelope. 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 Penelope'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 Penelope 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 Profile Manager
Here you can send a private message to a Wiki Genealogist managing Penelope'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.
