Figure 33: Ambilineal Descent Groups
The above diagram illustrates the formation of ambilineal groups,
also called ramages.
- Ego has chosen to join his father's ramage
which brings him into a descent line which includes a set of
descendants, shaded in blue, of his father's mother's mother, determined
according to a series of personal choices.
- Ego's brother has decided
to join his mother's group, whose members are shaded in red.
- Ego's children and brother's children have not yet made a ramage
selection. (Can you recommend some good choices?)
