|Families||Personal histories||Ascendant trees||Descendant trees|
Family trees are shown in four formats, all of which give birth, marriage, death, children, and number of descendants in the male line, and have links between trees where there is a intermarriage
1) Families, where father and children are shown, together with 'Notes'. On the left-hand side are links to Personal histories and ascendant or descendant trees. By constant selection of the parent the tree may be ascended to the progenitor, or by selection of childrens' names the tree descended to the latest generation.
2) Personal histories, which give the recorded events in a person's life authenticated by links to sources. Dates link to sources, where the link is to an illustration the size of the file is shown. Childrens' names link to their histories, and the name of the subject of the history links to his/her parent.
On the right-hand side are links to family trees, ascendant or descendant trees, and to significant dates in national history. By constant selection of the subject name the tree may be ascended to the progenitor, or by selection of childrens' names the tree descended to the latest generation.
3) Ascendant trees of mainstream and some connected families, show five generations to a page, with the earliest generation on the right. Each of the names, if selected, links to the Personal history of that person. Against each child in a family is shown a ">" which links to the parent.
When selected the parent is shown at the top of the
page in the generation column to the right. Against a child who becomes a father a "<" is shown,
which when selected links to the eldest child who is shown at the top of the page in the generation
column to the left.
Where there is a 'connected' tree the spouse is shown below the son/daughter and an "X" to the right is the link to the spouse in her/his tree. An example may be seen 'here', where in the third column 'Zoe Vivien Louise' is shown as the spouse of John Henry Bending, selection of the "X" will link to Zoe as a daughter in the Glass family tree.
4) Descendant trees show all families and include 'solitaries'. On the left-hand side in green italics are Henry numbers, and the information is shown in Henry number order, that is, the progenitor, then the first child to be a father, the first grandchild to be a father, the first great grandchild to be a father, and so on up to the present generation. Unlike ascendant trees all spouses are included. Each of the names if selected, links to the Personal history of that person
The Henry number is shown as a hyper-link to fathers, or, in the case of spouses who have their own tree as a link to that tree. (example)
The generations are staggered across the pages, and there is space for 14 generations, which is sufficient for all persons born before 1931, which is the limit for this history
