LINE, descents. The series of persons who have descended from a
common ancestor, placed one under the other, in the order of their
birth. It connects successively all the relations by blood to each
other. Vide Consanguinity; Degree.
The line is either direct or collateral. The direct line is composed
of all the persons who are descended from each other. If, in the
direct line, any one person is assumed the propositus, in order
to count from him upwards and downwards, the line will be divided
into two parts, the ascending and descending lines. The ascending
line is that, which counting from the propositus, ascends to his
ancestors, to his father, grandfather, great-grandfather, &c.
The descending line, is that which, counting from the same person,
descends to his children, grandchildren, great-grand-children, &c.
The preceding table is an example.
3. The collateral line considered by itself, and in relation to
the common ancestor, is a direct line; it becomes collateral when
placed along side of another line below the common ancestor, in
whom both lines unite for example:
These two lines are independent of each other; they have no connexion,
except by their union in the person of the common ancestor. This
reunion is what forms the relation among the persons composing the
5. A line is also paternal or maternal. In the examination of a
person's ascending line, the line ascends first to his father, next
to his paternal grandfather, his paternal great-grandfather, &c.
so on from father to father; this is called the paternal line. Another
freight line will be found to ascend from the same person to
his mother, his maternal grandmother, and so from mother to mother;
this is the maternal line. These lines, however, do not take in
all the ascendants, there are many others who must be imagined.
The number of ascendants is double at each degree, as is shown by
the following table
