The way the instructions are worded is open to more than one interpretation. Your suggested solution gives Ellen the right parent, but still loses the information that Mary and Catherine are John's daughters even though the ad clearly says so.
I am not suggesting that only the first person listed in an ad is "self"; it depends on the wording of the ad. Surely by careful reading of these ads we can work out family groups?
