Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Etta May's family history.
Ancestor List for Etta May (Knight) Galloway
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 Etta May 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 Etta May's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Etta May gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Etta May's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited Etta May'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 Etta May'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 Etta May and Queen Victoria? 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 Knights
This page shows all the Knights on WikiTree. It's useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Etta May. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Knight DNA Connections and KNIGHT G2G.

Profile of Etta 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.

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.
