Comments and Credits

This work referred to as Bible Genealogy has not been an exhaustive attempt to show all relationships identified in the Bible. Many are difficult to follow especially since many of the children were have the same name as a relative and since it appears that occasionally grandchildren are referred to as children. Names in the King James Version have not always been used in other versions but names listed here are from the King James or New King James versions.

A chart, completed by Kim E. Williams and made available to me by Jim Witt, helped greatly in sorting out relationships.
