I side with your wife...too much thinking, just like the Bears against the
Cardinals. Why wouldn't you just identify the lines cited in your note as
paternal great grandmother or maternal great grandmother? The maternal/paternal
designates which the line and the great, great-great, etc. describes the
position along the line.
