As these most ancient lines are SO far back (Bible ends about '''90 generations''' ago), it is highly recommended to NOT connect directly with them, but rather to find a most RECENT ancestor that connects to them and connect to that. This will reduce the number of duplicates and subsequent merges.
'''Important Note:''' NOT all of these profiles actually appear in the Bible. Many are taken from non-canonical sources, from a whole assortment of traditions. Please respect the work other people have put in, and do NOT remove these "additions".

There are presently '''at least''' thirty copies of the Biblical Tree on Geni. Each copy has between 200 to 1000 profiles in it, depending on how thorough and extensive it is.

As SO many people had copies of this extensive tree or have added profiles to it, there is little point in listed them all (presently at least 24 people). If you need the full list, just ask Shmuel Aharon.

At least 8 copies of this tree, have already merged together. As such, the existing tree has been gone over everything as far as the last of the Kings of David, with a fine comb, and verified the tree against various printed sources.
* '''[[Biblical Tree List]].'''
* '''[[Bible Tree Cheat Sheet]].'''
So from now on, instead of repeating hundreds of merges all over again each time, for each new copy of the tree that is "merged", and cleaning them up yet again, new trees should be "pruned". This means finding the LATEST point(s) that these copies diverge from the base tree, and grafting the new "branches" on at those points. After verifying that everything in the newly merged copy is also in the "main" tree, those [hundreds of] duplicate earlier profiles can be deleted.

In the Biblical lines alternate names (spellings or actual names) are seperated by / marks, the "English" spellings first and then the Hebrew. The surname field is ALWAYS left blank, unless the person has a specific title (mostly kings).

This is a Merge Project page. This project was started in January, 2008, pretty much as soon as merging trees first became possible. The following Project Page mostly replaces the need for this page.
