so save this page... or print it up... and fill in the blanks for yourself!! i left lots of space under the "common ancestor" [the one person who 2 people have in common] [[colored green]] and the "children designation" ie son/daughter, grandchild, etc [[colored red]] of the one common ancestor.
and so no one gets the wrong idea... this stuff confuses the heck out of me. i found this chart on someone's web site, liked it (since it looked like it made sense), and presented it here on my site. i apologize to the person who created it, since i have long forgotten who made this chart originally. it was a far smarter person than i who figured this out!!
