Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Rachel's family history.
Ancestor List for Rachel (Mann) Sheldon
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 Rachel 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.
Up to five generations of children and grandchildren of Rachel along with their spouses.
DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants
Designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Rachel's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Rachel gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Rachel's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited Rachel's testable 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 Rachel'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.
Family Group Sheet
Simple page to illustrate nuclear families based on marriages. Handy when someone had children from more than one marriage.
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."

Shows all the Manns on WikiTree. Useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Rachel. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Mann DNA Connections and MANN G2G.
Location Maps [independent apps]
Here are quick links to mapping websites:

WikiTree+'s Map Navigator can plot Rachel'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 Rachel
The central place for organizing and viewing information and sources. Whenever you see Rachel's name on WikiTree it will be linked to the profile at https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Mann-361 where Mann-361 is Rachel's unique WikiTree ID.
Profile Overview [independent app]
Dig into the contents of WikiTree profiles in a completely different way.
Enter Mann-361 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Rachel 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/Mann-361/4 into your favorite social network.

You'll notice colored privacy icons in search results, the Mann surname index, etc. The white dot for Rachel indicates that her profile is Open. Only the profile manager can edit this setting.
Tests of Rachel's DNA
If Rachel'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 Rachel'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 Rachel's Trusted List.
This shows you the WikiTree members who have full power to access and edit Rachel's information. Use it to see who else shares your interest in Rachel and receives updates about changes to the profile. The Relationship Finder icon links next their names will show you their relationship to Rachel.
Here are ways to connect and communicate with genealogists regarding Rachel's profile, especially if you're unable to collaborate directly using the WikiTree Tools above.
