The leading digits indicate the parent's number, and the last digit indicates the placement in the family (i.e. a:3.2 is the second child of the a:3 parents).

Note that a '-' is used instead of a '.' after every fifth character to help distinguish the differences between long strings of numbers ... for example, a:3.1.5.3.7-4.8.1.1.3-7.1 CLYDE THOMAS EISENBEIS.

The last digit, 1, indicates I am the eldest in my family, the next digit, 7, indicates my father was the 7th child in his family, the next digit, 3, indicates my grandfather was the 3rd child in his family, and the next digit, 1, indicates my great-grandfather was the eldest in his family.

The => symbol indicates more information is in the another section. Additional sections are used only if there are children. For example, if a:3.2 married, but had no children, then no new section would be created. But if there are children, a new section must be created.
