Revision as of 17:08, 1 April 2009

This is a Merge Project 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 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.

Adam.

Noah (10 generations later).

Abraham (10 generations later).

King David.

Josiah one of the final Kings in the House of David.

[Zerubabel] first of the Exilarchs.

Extent of Project and Cross-Over Profiles

Project Members

[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.

Family Group Permissions

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.

Naming Conventions

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).

Notes

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.

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.
