Ancestor List for Cecilia Knollys ahnenlist
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 Cecilia 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.

Descendants descendants
Since Cecilia 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 DNA view
Designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Cecilia's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Cecilia gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Cecilia's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active because Cecilia has no children. It may still be possible to test connections to Cecilia by testing other descendants of her ancestors who inherited the same X chromosome or mitochondrial DNA.

DNA Ancestor Confirmation Aid check mark
A step beyond the DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants views. The ambitious goal: scientific confirmation of each parent-child relationship in Cecilia'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.
