Ancestor List for Walter Nelson 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 Walter 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 Walter 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 Walter's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Walter gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Walter's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active because Walter has no children. It may still be possible to test connections to Walter by testing other descendants of his ancestors who inherited the same Y chromosome, X chromosome or mitochondrial DNA.

DNA Ancestor Confirmation Aid check mark
