Key To Annotations
This is the key to the different types of notes and
captions which are employed throughout the site. There aren't
that many of them right now, but there will probably be more
as features are added to the site.
Please note that your browser must support
Cascading Style Sheets
in order for everything to be displayed correctly. No need to worry;
most browsers do support at least the features of CSS that I'm using here.
But, if yours doesn't, you won't be very much at a loss—everything
is still completely viewable without the stylesheets, but you might not
see some of the text formatting (e.g. certain colors, fonts, and styles).
Please let me know if something appears to be wrong.
Notations in Family Data
- Speculation is shown as
grayed, italicized text,
and denotes facts that have yet
to be proven, but which I consider valuable as guides for
future research (perhaps to prove or disprove the
speculation). The reliabilty of these facts should not be
banked upon, as their quality ranges from that of time-tested
working theories, to that of mere guesswork, in some cases.
- Names appear in bold in the family data
pages of this site. Names that are
direct you to further information on that person and his or her family.
The links of children on a page will take you to the family page of each
child and his or her spouse. When a child did not marry, or when no information
is available on him or her, no link is provided for their name.
The husband and wife of a page often have the names of
their parents listed, and when these are linked, the links take you to the
family page for those parents.
In each of the name indices, every name is classified and color-coded
based on how that person relates to the Dutton family. The three classifications
are defined as follows:
- Direct descendants of Zachariah Dutton; blood relatives.
- The spouses of direct descendants; those who "married into"
- Associated lines—in general, the families of the
spouses of direct descendants. The parents
of spouses, when known, are indexed with this color, as well as any
previous spouses and their children, and later spouses and children.
