I keep seeing references to "Direct Descendants".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,
