This genealogy is not intended to be comprehensive.  (Previously omitted branches may nonetheless be
added in response to expressions of interest.)   Therefore the generation indicator mark (e.g.  (A), (i)  or whatever)
does not necessarily indicate the chronological position of a child's birth date in relation to those of siblings.
