3. M A N U A L


A genealogy contains a list - as complete as possible - of all male descendants of a certain founder. The data have been tabulated under each male descendant who has got in general a number "nX", where "n" denotes generation number counted from the founder and "X" is a capital letter for further identification. Obviously the founder has number 1A. Apart from various general data each descendant has his possible marriage(s) and child(ren) listed. The children have been numbered with arabian digits "1,2,3...". In case of males who get offspring, the indication "follows nX" refers to the number in the genealogy where further data can be found. For females who get offspring a either a separate pedigree (if known!) is given in chapter 5 or further children are listed by small roman letters "a,b,c..." and "aa, bb" and so on recursively.


In the alphabetical index (chapter 6) male descendants are referred to by the indication "nx" mentioned above. Further persons mentioned in the genealogy are also referred to by "nx", which indicates under which descendant the person in question is to be found in the text. In this case it concerns mostly the children and wive(s) of the descendant or her parents. Thus -for clarity- the listed index refers to a descendant number and not to a page number. Persons mentioned in the pedigrees of female descendants (chapter 5) haven been indexed by "nx-name", where "nx" is similar to the one above and "name" refers to the corresponding pedigree.


As mentioned in the preface the data in this genealogy have been collected from various - mostly unofficial - sources. I have listed these sources as carefully as possible in order to clarify which data are certain and which not proven. The references have been indicated by superscripted brackets that refer to the references collected at the end of each generation.
