Here are tips for using WikiTree's dynamic family tree view.


How to Find Someone's Dynamic Tree

If you're on a person's Trusted List, or their tree is public, and the person has a mother or father, the dynamic tree will appear linked from their Tree and Tools page, which you can get to by clicking on the Tree & Tools tab on their profile.

You can also get to a person's dynamic tree through the pull-down menu at the top of any of their person-related pages.

Plus Signs: Expanding Generations

A plus sign will appear to the right of a name if there are parents. Clicking the plus sign will make them appear.

A plus sign always appears to the left of a name. Clicking the plus sign will make the children appear, if there are any. If there are none, the plus sign will disappear.

Navigating the Tree

If you're using a traditional mouse you can click anywhere inside the tree, and then drag the tree to the left or right, or up or down.

To zoom in or out, use the mouse wheel.

Viewing Additional Information

If you click on a person in the tree a box will pop-up that includes their photo and birth and death locations, if available.

You will also see links to their profile page, their Tree & Tools page, and their dynamic tree. Clicking the Dynamic Tree link re-centers the tree view on them.
