Here is a collection of tools for genealogists with an interest in Reese's family history.
Ancestor List for Reese Witherspoon
This page isn't linked because it contains more private information than the tree view above. You need to be on Reese's Trusted List to access it. Please login.
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.
This shows up to five generations of children and grandchildren of Reese along with their spouses.
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 Reese's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Reese gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Reese's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active for privacy reasons.
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 Reese'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. Reese's Family Group Sheet is not linked for privacy reasons.
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 Reese and Queen Elizabeth II? 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 Reese
Here are photographs and source images for Reese. They are not linked for privacy reasons.
Index of Witherspoons
This page shows all the Witherspoons on WikiTree. It's useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Reese. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Witherspoon DNA Connections and WITHERSPOON 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. It is not linked here because it contains private information.
Profile of Reese
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 Reese's name on WikiTree (and ideally, elsewhere on the Internet!) it will be linked to the profile at https://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Witherspoon-320 where Witherspoon-320 is Reese's unique WikiTree ID. Since the profile is private you would see significantly more information if you login and join the Trusted List.
Enter Witherspoon-320 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Reese 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/Witherspoon-320/4 into your favorite social network.
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of Reese's family names. Many members share its URL https://www.WikiTree.com/treewidget/Witherspoon-320/10 via e-mail, 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 Reese's family history.
Here you can view the additions and changes that WikiTree members have made to Reese's profile so far. Login to access the feed.
Edit Profile and Relationships
Reese'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 Witherspoon surname index, etc. The yellow dot for Reese indicates that her profile is Private with a Public Biography and Family Tree. Only the profile manager can edit this setting.
Tests of Reese's DNA
If Reese's DNA (not a family member'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 Reese'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 Reese's Trusted List.
Here are ways to connect and communicate with genealogists regarding Reese's profile, especially if you're unable to collaborate directly using the WikiTree Tools above.
Comment on Profile Message Board
Reese'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 Reese. Profile managers are alerted to new comments via e-mail, everyone on the Trusted List will see a notice about it in their activity feeds, and people who visit Reese's profile in the future will see your comment. You will need to login to post.
Any image uploaded to WikiTree can be sent as a free e-card, including photos of Reese 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 Reese'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.
Trusted List Request Form
If you're a family member please join the Trusted List. This will you give you full access to view, follow, and edit Reese's information on WikiTree. This is especially important since the profile is private. You will need to login first.
