How many degrees of separation are between Gertrude 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 Gertrude 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 Gertrude's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Gertrude gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Gertrude's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active because Gertrude has no children. It may still be possible to test connections to Gertrude by testing other descendants of her ancestors who inherited the same X chromosome or mitochondrial DNA.

DNA Ancestor Confirmation Aid check mark
