Genealogy Research

Ancestor List for Plen Skipper ahnenlist
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.

Descendants descendants
Since Plen 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
Genetic genealogy is the new frontier. Our two DNA views are designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Plen's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Plen gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Plen's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active because Plen has no children. It may still be possible to test connections to Plen by testing other descendants of his ancestors who inherited the same Y chromosome, X chromosome or mitochondrial DNA.

DNA Ancestor Confirmation Aid check mark
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 Plen's tree. This is still fairly complex but it's getting simpler every day.

Dynamic 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.

Family Group Sheet 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 a spouse.

Family List
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 Plen 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 Plen photos

Index of Skippers
This page shows all the Skippers on WikiTree. It's useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Plen. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Skipper DNA Connections and SKIPPER G2G.

Printer-Friendly Tree printable tree
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 Plen
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 Plen's name on WikiTree (and ideally, elsewhere on the Internet!) it will be linked to the profile at where Skipper-528 is Plen's unique WikiTree ID.

Relationship Finder Find Relationship
Enter Skipper-528 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Plen 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.

Research with RootsSearch
Automatically search for Plen on more than 20 different genealogy websites with the RootsSearch app.

Share Tree on Facebook shareable tree
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 into your favorite social network.

Surnames surnames
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of Plen's family names. Many members share its URL via e-mail, e.g. with a DNA match to ask if the other person recognizes a surname.
