#### Appendix B: Numbering Convention

In this work, each Casebolt family member is given a unique identifying number.

The number is one digit less than the generation that person represents in this country since the progenitor of the family is numbered "0" and his offspring are numbered "1", "2" and so on.

The eldest offspring of "1" is "11" while the eldest of "2" is "21" and the third offspring of "21" is "213" showing that this person is the fourth generation and third offspring of the first offspring of the second offspring of the progenitor.

Spouses are shown by decimals. So the second spouse of "213" is "213.2", while the first spouse of "11" is "11.1". Offspring are identified in the numbering system with the Casebolt parent.

When the number of offspring exceed nine, the numbering continues with letters of the alphabet:

A = 10     F = 15     K = 20

B = 11     G = 16

C = 12     H = 17

D = 13     I = 18

E = 14     J = 19

"2257D" then is the thirteenth offspring of "2257".

Half-siblings of Casebolt descendants are identified as one of the letters "M" or greater:

M = 1     T = 8

N = 2     U = 9

O = 3     V = 10

P = 4     W = 11

Q = 5     X = 12

R = 6     Y = 13

S = 7     Z = 14
