I keep seeing references to "Direct Descendants".

Can somebody inform me - and perhaps also others - what an "Indirect
Descendant is?

I have always used these terms in this manner:

Direct Descendants = Children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, etc.
A straight line down on the family tree

Indirect Descendants = Nieces, Nephews, cousins, etc.
A jog to one side on the family tree

Hope this helps,
