The format of each "BOX" is the same. The name at the top of the box will usually be a male and head of the "family group" contained within the BOX. Most of the rest of the BOX is self explanatory.

Some notes on using the hyperlinks contained in this page:

When you click on a hyperlink listed in the "CHILDREN" section of the box, you will proceed (for male children) to a BOX with the name of that child as head of the family (listed at the top of the BOX). For Female children, you will proceed to a BOX with the spouse of that child as head of the family.

When you click on a hyperlink at the top of a BOX or on a spouse(within the box), you will proceed to a BOX for the FATHER of the person clicked on.
