I go deeper leaving nothing out in family tree (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

pedigree

Here is my best explanation:

'family tree' is the definition.

(pedigree is a kind of family tree)

'i go deeper leaving nothing out' is the subsidiary indication.

'leaving' suggests deleting specific letters.

'nothing' becomes 'o' (looks like zero - 0).

'out' is an anagram indicator.

'i'+'go'+'deeper'='igodeeper'

'igodeeper' with 'o' removed is 'igdeeper'.

'igdeeper' anagrammed gives 'pedigree'.

'in' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for pedigree that I've seen before include "(Distinguished) lineage", "Ancestry of a purebred animal", "Thoroughbred", "Line of ancestry, particularly a distinguished one", "Line of ancestors", "Ancestry, lineage", "record", "High-class", "Lineage of purebred animal" and "Stock".)
