I have looked it in the Wikipedia, but no simple example. So I am not sure. Is the indexed family of sets just power sets, indexed (indexing means labeling as I understand)?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For example the indexed family of sets of set A ={1,2,3,4,5,6} is just the collection of element from power set. A sub 1 may be {1} and A sub 7 may be {1,2} and so on. Indexed family of sets may be the collection of those sets as I understand. Can anyone clarify this please.(I am not a math major.)
