Noted Relations: Guide
Heros and rogues, saints and sinners – the 1799 historic personages listed on these pages are all related to me – some absurdly distantly.
The people are listed on separate index pages by the first
letter of their name, all in the format shown here.
Persons from particularly well-represented families may also be indexed
on a separate family page. These family pages will appear in the main index pages
highlighted in yellow.
type name [dates] – description (ref#) n [picture]
- Items so marked have recent changes
(as of 2011-10-23).
See the list below for a summary.

- A mark indicating the type of index entry:

- The person's name, and a link to a separate page devoted exclusively to that person, if such exists. Alternatively, in lieu of a separate page of their own, some individuals may have a short paragraph following this identification line.
- The date of birth and death for the person. An asterisk (*) is used to mark a birth date for living persons.
- A cursory description of the person.
- The person's unique reference number, and also a link to that person on the family ODT page on my Genealogy, et Cetera site. There, you will find how s/he fits into the rest of the family.
- The relationship of the individual to myself.
- Except in printed output
- If an image exists for the individual, a thumbnail of it may be selected to appear to the right of the text area. A larger copy of the picture will be on the person's individual page. These thumbnails are randomly selected for display here.
Except in printed output:
On letter index pages,
there will be a right sidebar (headed Families:) in the NorthEast corner listing all the
family index pages in this letter index, with links to those places.
