This table lists the largest branches on WikiTree that are not yet connected to the main tree. It is derived from reports generated by the Data Doctors Project. (We would like to thank Aleš for all his hard work in building those reports.)

  • The "Branch Size" number is the total number of profiles in each branch.
  • The "Linked Profile" for each branch is the first profile created in that branch. (Or, if the privacy on first profile created is set to Public or higher, then some other profile which is set to Open is used instead.)
  • The "Country" cell includes any country where somebody from that branch was born.

You can sort the list by any column (Branch Size, Linked Profile, Country, Notes, or Working On) by clicking on the sort symbol in the header for that column.

Free space profiles (like this one) work pretty much the same way that profiles for people do, so all the same syntax applies. So to show that you are working on a branch, edit this page, scroll down to the listing you want work on, and replace the number at the end of the line with two opening square brackets ([), then your WikiTree ID, then a pipe (|), then your name, then two closing square brackets (]), like this: [[Example-123|Ferdinand Grubstake]].

Similarly, when you connect a branch (or discover one that's already connected), add Connected (or Found connected) and then the date. Put three single quotes (') before and after "connected" to put it into bold, like this: "'Connected'" February 29, 2020. One of the page pruners will delete that entry in a couple of weeks, after everybody has had a chance to celebrate the new connection.

Branches sorted by size

Updated : Jan 27, 2024

Note : The branch sizes are now computed using the "100 Circles query", based on Connection Finder data, including private profiles (like CC7 does). Therefore they are generally greater than the values computed on WikiTree+. Moreover, branches seen as distinct in WT+ but in fact connected by private profiles will appear in this table under a single entry.

New in 2024 : the column "Change" indicates the last month a change of the branch size has been noted. "No" indication in this column means the size has not changed in 2024.

Recently connected branches are kept at the bottom of the table for about one month.

See related G2G discussion for more details.

Connected the tree from Estonia. Connected three other smaller unconnected branches to it before I connected it to the Global tree.

Connected the largest branch in Finland, Karstén-70, by just connecting father Karstuin-32 with son Karstunen-3.

I have discovered that most, if not all, of the earliest male ancestors of Beulah-9 were African-American. I added the appropriate sticker and sources with links to those I researched.

I connected Morin_Milan-1 yesterday. That one was pretty easy. Since they have roots in San Luis Potosi, I just poked around until I found a distant cousin. ;)

I've been working on finding slave owners among my ancestors, and any others of some interest to me. In South Africa, these were rather well documented thanks to slave registers, set up by district, where all slaves had to be registered. These cover the years of 1816-1834/38 as in 1834 slavery was abolished in the British Empire, with about 4 years of 'apprenticeship' added.

These registers list enormous numbers of slaves, but the list does only rarely contain the mother, and hardly ever a father. Also, I have no idea how to connect the slaves of 1834/38 with later people that did get a more officially supported registration, with family relations. That means that all these people can related to their 'owners', but there is no proper way to connect them with the wikitree genealogy. The best I can do is add lists of slaves, interpreting the available information in a way that recovers these people as individual human beings in stead of property.

I don't know how, but some thought is needed on how to systematically support, or in some way connect such classes of people for whom the administrative information in the past was very poor.

So: what you are doing is great! But never forget the classes of unconnected individuals for which it is nearly impossible to ever find a 'real family relationship' with others on the tree.

PS: here is my free space with structured pointers to help find any relevant images of slave registers among the collections of images at familysearch: Slave Owners and Slaves in South Africa

Branch sizes in the table, based on WikiTree+ data, were largely underestimated. I've started replacing by values provided by the Connection Finder query (used in the 100 Circles project, or to compute CC7) which includes private profiles.

Work in progress, the 20 top branches have been updated and sorted by the new size. Several branches have been found as duplicates, connected by private profiles. I wonder if the * for "no change since January 2017" still makes sense.

> I wonder if the * for "no change since January 2017" still makes sense.

I started using that to indicate to connectors which branches weren't currently being updated, and therefore should be safe for them to work on (and, yes, those branches with the asterisks really hadn't shown any change in size in seven years). But your new Recent Change column essentially fulfils the same function.

That was the intention, yes. At some point no value in this column will mean no change since Sep 2023. Just a refresh of the reference time point. But clearly, most of those branches have been dormant for years.
