This site includes not only our ancestors, but also many cousins of various degrees, assorted spouses, and even a few others not even actually releated to us. To help our relatives find the people actually related to us, and perhaps to them, we have marked our ancestors and their siblings with the following icons:

These icons appear after the person's name in the indexes, and before the name on that person's individual page, and when listed as a child with his or her parent.

In the Descendant Charts for each family line ancestors and their siblings are similarly marked, but by use of colors of the boxes rather than by the icons above. There are legends on the charts explaining the color-coding.
