Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Johan's family history.
Ancestor List for Johan Sprague
This page is empty. Do you know who Johan's parents were? Please contact profile managers.
Ancestor Listmaker [independent app]
View or download a list of up to 20 generations of ancestors who meet a wide variety of criteria.
This shows up to five generations of children and grandchildren of Johan along with their spouses.
DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants
Our two DNA views are designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Johan's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Johan gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Johan's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited Johan's testable 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 Johan's tree.
Family Group Sheet
This simple page illustrates nuclear families based on marriages. It's handy when someone had children from more than one marriage.
This flexible tool enables you to see more ancestors and/or descendants on one page than anywhere else on WikiTree.
Fan Chart [independent app]
This tool has 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."
Global Family Tree Connection
How many degrees of separation are between Johan 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.
Index of Spragues
This page shows all the Spragues on WikiTree. It's useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Johan. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Sprague DNA Connections and SPRAGUE G2G.
Here are quick links to mapping websites:
Birth: Upway, Dorset, England on Google Maps | Open Street Map.
Marriage: Upway,,Dorset,England on Google Maps | Open Street Map.
Death: Upway, Dorsetshir, England on Google Maps | Open Street Map.
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 Johan
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 Johan's name on WikiTree it will be linked to the profile at https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Sprague-148 where Sprague-148 is Johan's unique WikiTree ID.
Enter Sprague-148 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Johan 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/wiki/Sprague-148/4 into your favorite social network.
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of Johan's family names. Many members share its URL https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Sprague-148/10 via email, e.g. with a DNA match to ask if the other person recognizes a surname.
Here are additional tools to help genealogists collaborate on WikiTree to grow Johan's family history.
Here you can view the additions and changes that WikiTree members have made to Johan's profile so far.
Edit Profile and Relationships
Johan's edit page is the central location for adding information and correcting mistakes. Is there anything you can add or improve upon? Since you're not logged-in yet you can't make changes directly. Contact the profile managers. Please don't go away without giving us your information and sources. Thank you!
You'll notice colored privacy icons in search results, the Sprague surname index, etc. The white dot for Johan indicates that his profile is Open. Only the profile manager can edit this setting.
Tests of Johan's DNA
If Johan'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 Johan'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 Johan's Trusted List.
This shows you the WikiTree members who have full power to access and edit Johan's information. Use it to see who else shares your interest in Johan and receives updates about changes to the profile. The Relationship Finder icon links next their names will show you their relationship to Johan.
Here are ways to connect and communicate with genealogists regarding Johan's profile, especially if you're unable to collaborate directly using the WikiTree Tools above.
Comment on Profile Message Board
Johan's profile, like all WikiTree profiles, has a section for public comments. This is the best place to put anything you'd like seen by all genealogists who are interested in Johan. Profile managers are alerted to new comments via email, everyone on the Trusted List will see a notice about it in their activity feeds, and people who visit Johan's profile in the future will see your comment. You will need to login to post.
E-Card for Johan
Any image uploaded to WikiTree can be sent as a free e-card, including photos of Johan or scans of vintage postcards. An e-card can be a great way to tell a genealogist or family member about what's here.
Private Message — Directly Contact Profile Manager
Here you can send a private message to a Wiki Genealogist managing Johan's profile. If there are multiple managers or genealogists involved, you will need to send separate messages. Unless your information is sensitive it's better to post a public comment. Login to post.
