Linda  (by the way this sort of discussion really belongs on 

I don't think I saw an answer, so let me try:

I think it has to do with the fact that there are two seedling numbers 
being defined there.

73-17G: (        Blocher 223, Louise Watts sib x 71-147P: (      
(((Commentary x Claudia Rene) x Claudia Rene) x Ponderosa) x (Ponderosa 
x New Moon)           )        )      X Actress

The two outside ")"s to the right of New Moon are the closings for the 
opening parens for the second and first seedling numbers. I have 
separated them out with spaces.

That leaves the the 3 opening parens to the left of Commentary to 

that breaks down like this:

(   (   (Com x CR)   x  CR)  x  Ponderosa)      and that balances  and 
that is crossed with (Ponderosa  x New Moon)

The next closing parens after that is the closing parens for the 
definition of seedling # 71-147P  which in turn was crossed with 
Blocher 223, Louise Watts sib  and the very last closing parens closes 
the definition of 73-17G  which was crossed with Actress

I hope that helps.
