Profiles that are central to the project (the start of a royal line for instance), and various important points within it, to make getting around that part of the tree easier. It would be most useful, of course, to include a list of duplicate copies of the starting profiles. Also, including each person's birth and death years, will make finding finding duplicates easier, that much easier.

I, Shmuel Aharon, have already merged together about 8 copies of this tree. As such, I've been over everything as far as the last of the Kings of David, with a fine comb, and verified the tree against various printed sources. My present policy is, instead of repeating hundreds of merges all over again each time, to merge-connect new copies of the tree, in the more recent areas, and deleting the duplicates. Of course, I verify that everything in the new copy is also in the merged tree.

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 Noah or Judah. Many Jewish families trace their lineages to the Royal House of David, and the 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.

[Kris Stewart] was also extremely helpful getting this project started. Thanks Kris! Scott Hibbard was the first to give me Family Group permissions, giving me a toe-hold to start from.

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

Notes

I, Shmuel Aharon, have already merged together about 8 copies of this tree. As such, I've been over everything as far as the last of the Kings of David, with a fine comb, and verified the tree against various printed sources. My present policy is, instead of repeating hundreds of merges all over again each time, to merge-connect new copies of the tree, in the more recent areas, and deleting the duplicates. Of course, I verify that everything in the new copy is also in the merged tree.
