Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in William's family history.
Ancestor List for William Murdock Jr.
The ancestor list 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
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.
How many degrees of separation are between William 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.
This shows up to five generations of children and grandchildren of William along with their spouses.
DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants
Our two DNA views are designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand William's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom William gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for William's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited William'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 William's 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.
Dynamic Tree by Topola [independent app]
This app has advanced visualization tools plus downloading and printing capabilities.
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.
Fan Chart [independent app]
This tool has 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."

Location Maps [independent apps]

Birth: Lebanon, New London, Connecticut on Google Maps | Open Street Map.

Death: Crawford, Pennsylvania, United States on Google Maps | Open Street Map.
WikiTree+'s Map Navigator can plot William's ancestors or descendants on a 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 William
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 William's name on WikiTree it will be linked to the profile at https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Murdock-1913 where Murdock-1913 is William's unique WikiTree ID.
Enter Murdock-1913 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between William 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/wiki/Murdock-1913/4 into your favorite social network.
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of William's family names. Many members share its URL https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Murdock-1913/10 via email, 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 William's family history.
Here you can view the additions and changes that WikiTree members have made to William's profile so far.
Edit Profile and Relationships
William'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 Murdock surname index, etc. The white dot for William indicates that his profile is Open. Only the profile manager can edit this setting.
Tests of William's DNA
If William'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 William'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 William's Trusted List.
This shows you the WikiTree members who have full power to access and edit William's information. Use it to see who else shares your interest in William and receives updates about changes to the profile. The Relationship Finder icon links next their names will show you their relationship to William.
Here are ways to connect and communicate with genealogists regarding William's profile, especially if you're unable to collaborate directly using the WikiTree Tools above.
Comment on Profile Message Board

Profile managers are alerted to new comments via email, everyone on the Trusted List will see a notice about it in their activity feeds, and people who visit William'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 William or scans of vintage postcards. An e-card can be a great way to tell a genealogist or family member about what's here.
