This is a '''[[Merge_Collaboration|Merge Project]]''' page.
{{TOC right}}This is a '''[[Merge_Collaboration|Merge Project]]''' page. This project was started in January, 2008, pretty much as soon as merging trees first became possible. The following [http://www.geni.com/projects/Biblical-Tree/38 Project Page] mostly replaces the need for this page.
Many lines of European Royalty (and some of the Pharaohs) trace their ancient lineage all the way back to the biblical era, mostly through various descendants of [http://www.geni.com/profile/index/6000000002145556219 Noah] or [http://www.geni.com/profile/index/6000000000190145122 Judah]. Many Jewish families trace their lineages to the Royal House of David, and the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exilarch Exilarchs] that followed them.
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".
= Central Profiles =
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.
* [http://www.geni.com/profile/index/6000000000961697233 Adam.]
* [http://www.geni.com/profile/index/6000000002145556219 Noah] (10 generations later).

= Extent of Project and Cross-Over Profiles =
The end of the [Jewish] Biblical Era, is typically considered to be in the times of [http://www.geni.com/people/6000000000961704850 Zerubbabel], who led the '''return''' to Israel, of the Jews exiled to Babylon, after the First Temple was destroyed. This project covers everything until then.
Additional "edges" of this tree are the Ancient or European Royalty lineages, that connect to it at various points. Such as:
* [[Pharaohs of Egypt Merge]] - These lines start with the Biblical proto-ancestor of the Egyptian nation, [http://www.geni.com/profile/index/6000000001509985212 Mizraim] (this being the Hebrew name of Egypt). Mizraim was the son of [http://www.geni.com/profile/index/6000000002293771207 Ham], and grandson of [http://www.geni.com/profile/index/6000000002145556219 Noah.]
* [[Kings of Troy Merge]] - This line starts with [http://www.geni.com/profile/index/6000000000410602002 Dardanus King of Dardania], grandson of [http://www.geni.com/profile/index/6000000000190145122 Judah] (via [http://www.geni.com/profile/index/6000000000435376366 Zarah / Zerah]).
* [[Kings of Ireland Merge]] -
** The very earliest generation in this line is [http://www.geni.com/profile/index/6000000000424692540 Jobath] son of [http://www.geni.com/profile/index/6000000000424692529 Javan] (grandson of [http://www.geni.com/profile/index/6000000002145556219 Noah]).
** Some versions of this line have [http://www.geni.com/profile/index/6000000000795327457 Tea-Tephi / Tamar-Telphi], as a daughter of [http://www.geni.com/profile/index/6000000000961704741 King Zedekiah]. and wife of [http://www.geni.com/profile/index/6000000000424673592 Eochaidh the Heremon].

Listed in no particular order, although the first couple of names presently manage the majority of the profiles. This list is probably NOT complete, but due to shifting to "''prune and graft''" merge methods, is not likely to grow much longer.

= Naming Conventions =
# In the Biblical lines alternate names (spellings or actual names) are separated by / marks, the "English" spellings first and then the Hebrew.
# The surname field is ALWAYS set to a single period ( . ), unless the person has a very specific title (mostly kings). This helps keep all of the records the same (especially after merges, which might otherwise mess up the name), and enables the name to be found, in the '''Go To''' tab at the bottom of the tree (which doesn't work for blank surnames).
# The maiden-name field is ALWAYS left blank.
= Notes =
At least 12 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 the tree has mostly been verified against various printed sources.
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.

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.
