THE NARRATIVE SECTIONS
The "Direct Relations" section reports the details of individuals who have a direct family connection to Niall Rankine Scott. 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.
With a narrative section, each generation is shown as a separate subsection, within which the individuals are listed in order of the closeness of their relationship to Niall Rankine Scott.
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 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.
In cases of adopted (or fostered) children, the parental connection is shown with a dashed line and a continuation reference number preceded by "=" is shown within the individual's box. This number references the tree in which that individual is shown with his or her natural parents.
