What does it mean to be a direct descendant?

This is a requirement for a club.


Answer by  jhitchin (92)

A direct descendant would be someone who can be traced back through parental lineage. So, a great-great-granddaughter would be a direct descent. The great-grandson of your brother or cousin would not be a direct descendant.


Answer by  Roland27 (16334)

Direct descendant means that you are directly related to the person in question by blood. The person could be your great-great-great-great grandfather, as long as the relation is by blood. Relation by marriage or adoption do not count as a direct descendant.


Answer by  John (9008)

It means that the person is your ancestor, and would be your grandparent (albeit, perhaps, with many "greats" added). It does not apply if you are more distantly related.


Answer by  MissTrusted (48)

To be a direct descendant means you have blood connection. You're not married into the family, or into the blood line.


Answer by  lilstreet (13)

It means to be related via natural birth mother or father. In addition to knowing at least one name of the grandparent and one name of the grandparents children if any. One must know a little history of their relatives. Maiden name of grandparent would help alot.
