Generational Alignment of the Author's Family

Recently I became interested in my family genealogy. Initially that interest was independent of my generational history work, having been sparked by a discussion with family members and facilitated by a period of time available for study. Very soon, however, it became clear that the two subjects are intimately connected, maybe even one and the same.

Following a family's history is, in fact, a generational search. Members of the family tree are representatives of historical eras and generations as well as members of the family hierarchy. The table below attempts to capture that relationship. The individuals from each of my and my wife's family generations are listed according to their position in the Family Tree and the historical record (represented by the their generational alignment).
