This is a page for Sages, Torah Luminaries, venerable Hasidic dynasties and illustrious Rabbinic lineages.

We're just starting out, feel free to help and insert additional leading profiles.


Bible Figures

These are listed ONLY for reference! Please do NOT merge with these profiles. Instead try and find the most recent famous person in your tree, such as the names above, and merge with those. Merging directly with a Bible Figure, creates needless work for yourself and whoever has to then merge the 90 intervening generations from them. These older lines are almost certainly ALREADY in the tree!

As I happened to start the biblical merge with some tree entered by non-Jews, most of the profiles are managed by them. Please contact Shmuel Aharon Kam regarding any questions about these lines.

Much more information on the Biblical Tree Merge page.
