THE NARRATIVE SECTIONS
The "Direct Relations" section reports the details of individuals who have a direct family connection to Shane Lee Hamrick. The section is broken into sub-sections for each generation, within which the individuals are listed in order of closeness of relationship. The sequence numbers are used throughout the document to cross-reference back to the detailed entry of an individual.
Cousin relationships are determined by distance (first, second, third, etc.), and times removed. Distance is determined as one less than the lower number of the previous generations traversed back from each of the individuals until the first common ancestor is found. Thus, if two people of the same generation have a common great-grandparent (three generations back), they are second cousins.
Removal is determined by the number of generations which separate the two people. For example, consider your first cousin's children. Because your common ancestor with them is your grandfather (two generations back) and their great-grandfather (three generations back), you are first cousins, once removed.
FAMILY TREES SECTION
Each family tree shows the reported children, parents, grandparents and great-grandparents of a family group. In order to reduce redundancy, any family group which is wholly included within another family tree may not be reported separately.
Above each of the great-grandparent boxes (top row), a continuation family tree reference number in angle brackets is shown if the great-grandparent is recorded as a child in the continuation tree. A continuation reference number is also shown to the left of a grandparent or parent box if that individual has siblings reported in the continuation tree; and beneath a child box (bottom row) if that individual has children reported in the continuation tree.
In cases of multiple marriages, a continuation reference number preceded by "=" is shown to the right of a parent box. This number references the previous and/or next tree in which that individual is shown with another partner.
