Vintage , in winemaking , is the process of picking grapes and creating the finished product—wine see Harvest wine. A vintage wine is one made from grapes that were all, or primarily, grown and harvested in a single specified year. In certain wines, it can denote quality, as in Port wine , where Port houses make and declare vintage Port in their best years. From this tradition, a common, though not strictly correct, usage applies the term to any wine that is perceived to be particularly old or of a particularly high quality.
Vintage is a slang term used by mortgage-backed security MBS traders and investors to refer to an MBS that is seasoned over some time period. The underlying loans of certain vintage MBS have unique characteristics, such as burnout , that make the vintage trade at a premium price. These unique characteristics are a result of how underlying assets in MBS are pooled. MBS' underlying assets are generally grouped across certain geographical regions with similar terms to maturity and interest rates.
All of them show the same basic types of information, such as birth, death, and marriage years for ancestors going back several generations. The difference between them is in how that information is displayed. In a family tree, the ancestors branch out from the bottom to the top of the page; in a fan chart, they're displayed in a fan shape, while a pedigree chart looks like half of a sports bracket and displays the pertinent information reading from left to right. If you know the location of an ancestor's birth, marriage, or death, begin with those counties to request basic records.
