Miscellany

These documents are of a more or less general nature and don't really fit anywhere else. So I have made a special place for them — and this is it!

  1. Abbreviations and Acronyms: Definitions (Abbrev.html 2009-03-23 09:21:38 35KB)
  2. About the Author: Yes! It's all about ME! ;o) (about.html 2011-08-13 12:17:03 8KB)
  3. CARDS - Handy Reference Data: I have found these small tables useful when printed on 4x6 index cards. (Cards.html 2006-11-13 03:43:28 23KB)
  4. CAVEAT: Fair Warning re Data Accuracy: Data presented in the pages on this site have NOT, for the most part, been personally verified by me. While I have made concerted efforts to collect these data from reliable sources, they should not be uncritically accepted as fact but, rather, used only to guide your own researches. (Caveat.html 2006-01-19 15:20:52 9KB)

  10. M-Tafel: Matriarchal Table Representation: A new tabular presentation of ancestors is described. Similar to the Ahnentafel, or Ancestor Table, the presentation is essentially a balanced binary tree. The difference here is that only the female ancestors are represented. The purpose is to capture in as compact form as possible, all of the different ancestral surnames in their hierarchical placement. The new format is called a Matriarchal Table, or M-Tafel. (Matriarchy.html 2006-01-19 15:39:26 8KB)
  11. Outline Descendant Tree (ODT): Report Format: The salient characteristics of the ODT (Outline Descent Tree) report format, as used on this website, are presented here. This format shows the descendants of a person in outline form, where each generation is indented. It is a depth-first display, as contrasted with a breadth-first display. Each person's data is displayed on a single line (which may be word-wrapped for display purposes). The ODT is a very compact representation. (ODT.html 2006-01-19 15:20:04 37KB)
