I suppose I more or less understood it.

1) Roll your birth order.

2) The second roll: in your family 1d6-1 survived children (minimum one - that's you are).

Am I right?

Sounds about right. You can also randomize the sex of your siblings if you choose by flipping a coin/rolling a die for each of them, but that's up to you or if you'd rather just elaborate the rest of your family through creative thinking.

And don't forget to roll to see if they're married, have children, the House of their spouse, that spouse's family...

(sheepish grin)

Uhm. Only if you wantto, that is. There are benefits to doing it either way. And of course, no matter what you roll beforehand, a style point or two should allow you to change anything that has not yet been introduced into play. (My personal take on this is that rolling up at least your siblings' spouse and kids gives you a pool of neices and nephews to spoil, subvert, and adopt as NPCs when they're old enough, but your mileage may vary.)
