Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in John's family history.
Ancestor List for John Shehane
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 John 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.
Since John 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
Designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand John's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom John gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for John's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active because John has no children. It may still be possible to test connections to John by testing other descendants of his ancestors who inherited the same Y chromosome, X chromosome or mitochondrial 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 John'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.
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."

Profile of John
The central place for organizing and viewing information and sources. Whenever you see John's name on WikiTree it will be linked to the profile at https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Shehane-46 where Shehane-46 is John's unique WikiTree ID.
Profile Overview [independent app]
Dig into the contents of WikiTree profiles in a completely different way.
Enter Shehane-46 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between John 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/Shehane-46/4 into your favorite social network.

Tests of John's DNA
If John'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 John'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 John's Trusted List.
