Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Anna Matilda's family history.
Ancestor List for Anna Matilda Orth
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.
Since Anna Matilda 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
Genetic genealogy is the new frontier. Our two DNA views are designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Anna Matilda's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Anna Matilda gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Anna Matilda's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active because Anna Matilda has no children. It may still be possible to test connections to Anna Matilda by testing other descendants of her ancestors who inherited the same X chromosome or mitochondrial 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 Anna Matilda'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. It may not be useful here unless you add children.
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 Anna Matilda and Henry VIII? 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.
Images of Anna Matilda
There aren't any photographs or source images for Anna Matilda yet. Please contact the profile managers if you have any.
Index of Orths
This page shows all the Orths on WikiTree. It's useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Anna Matilda. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Orth DNA Connections and ORTH G2G.
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 Anna Matilda
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 Anna Matilda's name on WikiTree (and ideally, elsewhere on the Internet!) it will be linked to the profile at https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Orth-37 where Orth-37 is Anna Matilda's unique WikiTree ID.
Enter Orth-37 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Anna Matilda 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/Orth-37/4 into your favorite social network.
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of Anna Matilda's family names. Many members share its URL https://www.WikiTree.com/treewidget/Orth-37/10 via e-mail, e.g. with a DNA match to ask if the other person recognizes a surname.
