Genealogy:
A Master Number beginning with three digits is given to the direct line
descending stem.  All other descending lineages are ordered according to
where they connect into the direct line of descent as sons or daughters.
They have a dash (-) to show the connection.  The Numbers are arranged
by time of birth in the family, where possible, with the direct descendant
being placed where he or she belongs by order of birth.  In cases of long
and questionable pedigrees, the lineage is shown descending down, but
with no numbering system attached.  Added commentary is author's opinion.

Research Notes (General): ↑ upΛ
A. 
Ezekiel 37: 16-19  Moreover, thou son of man [Ezekiel], take thee one stick,
     and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions:
     then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim,
     and for all the house of Israel his companions: And join them one to another
     into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.  And when the children
     of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou
    
meanest by these?  Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will
     take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of
     Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah,
     and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand. 
1 Nephi 13: 37-42
     And blessed are they who shall seek to bring forth my Zion at that day, for
     they shall have the gift and the power of the Holy Ghost; and if they endure
     unto the end they shall be lifted up at the last day, and shall be saved in the
     everlasting kingdom of the Lamb; and whoso shall publish peace, yea, tidings
     of great joy, how beautiful upon the mountains shall they be.  And it came to
     pass that I beheld the remnant of the seed of my brethren, and also the book
     of the Lamb of God, which had proceeded forth from the mouth of the Jew,
     that it came forth from the Gentiles unto the remnant of the seed of my brethren.
     And after it had come forth unto them I beheld other books, which came forth
     by the power of the Lamb, from the Gentiles unto them, unto the convincing
     of the Gentiles and the remnant of the seed of my brethren, and also the Jews
     who were scattered upon all the face of the earth, that the records of the prophets
     and of the twelve apostles of the Lamb are true.  And the angel spake unto me,
     saying: These last records, which thou hast seen among the Gentiles, shall
       establish the truth of the first, which are of the twelve apostles of the Lamb,
     and shall make known the plain and precious things which have been taken
     away from them; and shall make known to all kindreds, tongues, and people,
     that the Lamb of God is the Son of the Eternal Father, and the Savior of the
     world; and that all men must come unto him, or they cannot be saved.  And
     they must come according to the words which shall be established by the mouth
     of the Lamb; and the words of the Lamb shall be made known in the records of
     thy seed, as well as in the records of the twelve apostles of the Lamb; where-
     fore they both shall be established in one; for there is one God and one
       Shepherd over all the earth.  And the time cometh that he shall manifest
     himself unto all nations, both unto the Jews and also unto the Gentiles;
     and after he has manifested himself unto the Jews and also unto the Gentiles,
     then he shall manifest himself unto the Gentiles and also unto the Jews,
     and the last shall be first, and the first shall be last.

B.  The ancient Books of the Bible, compared with Mormon Archaeology,
     invalidate the documentary hypothesis theories, traditionally known as:
     J, E, P, and D; for the Torah and the Deuteronomy history, from Joshua
     to Kings.  Some modern historians incorrectly state that the Torah
     was gradually recorded as the Hebrew Bible, between the 5th century
     B.C. and the 2nd century B.C.  Clearly, internal source evidence from
     the
Pearl of Great Price, the OT - NT and the Book of Mormon, suggest
     primary source documents, or copies thereof, going back to the time of
     Adam and (Eve - the Mother of all Living), were readily available to
     
Moses, who then wrote or copied them for himself and other Israelites.
     The
list of biblical figures identified in extra-biblical sources is compelling.
     Additional validation of the Bible, as a surviving primary source document,

     is made by the Joseph Smith, Jr. Translation of the Bible.  Words added
     and corrections made, restore the original formation and sense of ancient
     scribes and prophets, including technical details from Genesis to
Revelation.
    
Joseph Smith, Jr. said, [I believe the Bible as it read when it came from the pen
     of the original writers. Ignorant translators, careless transcribers, or designing and
     corrupt priests have committed many errors. As it read, Gen. 6:6, "It repented the
     Lord that he had made man on the earth"; also, Num. 23:19, "God is not a man,
     that he should lie; neither the Son of man, that he should repent"; which I do not
     believe. But it ought to read, "It repented Noah that God made man." This I believe,
     and then the other quotation stands fair. If any man will prove to me, by one passage
     of Holy Writ, one item I believe to be false, I will renounce and disclaim it as far as I
     promulgated it..]

Genealogy of Jesus: Jesus Christ--Messiah (JS Elias - Elijah - Messiah (pdf)
     "The Spirit of Messiah is all power in Heaven and in Earth:
     Enthroned in the Heavens as King of Kings and Lord of Lords
."
     The Lord’s Prayer is the prayer of the
Messiah to Father (Ahman),
     who administers the Keys of the Universe throughout all eternity.
     Jesus Christ was born to become King of the Jews, as well as King
     over the whole earth.  As the Son of God, he suffered the rejection
     and abject humiliation of being crucified for the sins of all mankind.
     Christ had previously been rejected by the leadership of the nation,
     who released a seditious murderer from their own ranks, rather than
     give this perfect Man, in whom their was no fault, an act of kind mercy,
     by
Pontius Pilate
John 19: 34-35  But one of the soldiers with a spear
     pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.
And he
     that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that
[what] he
     saith
[is] true, that ye might believe.  D&C 19: 15-20 
Jesus Christ commands all
     to" repent, lest I smite you by the rod of my mouth, and by my wrath, and by
     my anger, and your sufferings be sore--how sore you know not, how exquisite
     you know not, yea, how hard to bear you know not. For behold, I, God, have
     suffered these things for all, that they might not suffer if they would repent;
     But if they would not repent they must suffer even as I;
Which suffering caused
     myself, even God, the greatest of all, to tremble because of pain, and to bleed
     at every pore, and to suffer both body and spirit--and would that I might not drink
     the bitter cup, and shrink-- Nevertheless, glory be to the Father, and I partook and
     finished my preparations unto the children of men.
Wherefore, I command you again
     to repent, lest I humble you with my almighty power; and that you confess your sins,
     lest you suffer these punishments of which I have spoken, of which in the smallest,
     yea, even in the least degree you have tasted at the time I withdrew my Spirit."

Written Records  John 1: 45  Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him,
     We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write,
     Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.  Research Note:  This is a classic example
     of a surviving ancient, original record that was available in New Testament times,
     that has since been destroyed, or come up missing in these the latter days on earth.
     Additional obviously lost records are the baptismal records of John the Baptist, church
     baptismal and priesthood ordinance records of Jesus Christ and His apostles, including
     marriage record for Peter; records of those who performed baptisms for the dead, etc.

Now the acts of Rehoboam, first and last, are they not written in the histories
         of Shemaiah the prophet and of Iddo the seer, after the manner of genealogies?
        
A "seer" implies that Iddo had the Urim and Thummim, to validate family records.
      
- Ezra 2: 59-63  And these were they which went up from Tel-melah, Tel-harsa,
         Cherub, Addan, and Immer: but they could not shew their father’s house, and
         their seed, whether they were of Israel:
The children of Delaiah, the children
         of Tobiah, the children of Nekoda, six hundred fifty and two.
And of the children
         of the priests: the children of Habaiah, the children of Koz, the children of Barzillai;
         which took a wife of the daughters of Barzillai the Gileadite, and was called after
         their name:
These sought their register among those that were reckoned by genealogy,
         but they were not found: therefore were they, as polluted, put from the priesthood.
         And the Tirshatha (or provincial governor) said unto them, that they should not eat
         of the most holy things, till there stood up a priest with Urim and with Thummim.

Joseph Smith--Matthew 1: 1  For I say unto you, that ye shall not see me
       henceforth and know that I am he of whom it is written by the prophets,
       until ye shall say: Blessed is he who cometh in the name of the Lord, in
       the clouds of heaven, and all the holy angels with him. Then understood
       his disciples that he should come again on the earth, after that he was
       glorified and crowned on the right hand of God.


     -
Joseph Smith Translation Matthew 3: 4-6  And when he had gathered all
       the chief priests, and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them,
       saying, Where is the place that is written of by the prophets, in which Christ
       should be born?  For he greatly feared, yet he believed not the prophets.
      
And they said unto him, It is written by the prophets, that he should be born
       in
Bethlehem of Judea, for thus have they said, The word of the Lord came
       unto us, saying,
And thou, Bethlehem, which lieth in the land of Judea, in thee
       shall be born a prince,
which art not the least among the princes of Judea; for
       out of thee shall come the Messiah, who shall save my people Israel. 
       Research Notes: 2nd Century 
       132 - 135 A.D.  - The majority of the Jewish population of Judea was either killed,
                                exiled, or sold into slavery, and the Jewish religious and political
                                authority ended.  Thus, Bethlehem was no longer part or of Judea.
                                Since 1995, Bethlehem has been governed by the Palestinian
                                National Authority, and still is not within the confines of Judea.
                                Therefore, as it is written by the prophets, only Jesus Christ can
                                be properly ascribed as being by birth location, the true Messiah.

     -
Joseph Smith Translation Matthew 3: 24-26  And it came to pass that Jesus
       grew up with his brethren, and waxed strong, and waited upon the Lord
       for the time of his ministry to come. And he served under his father, and he
       spake not as other men, neither could he be taught; for he needed not that
       any man should teach him.

       Beholdest thou the Scribes, and the Pharisees, and the Priests, and the Levites?

Joseph Smith Translation Matthew 17: 10-14  And Jesus answered and said
       unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things, as the prophets
       have written
. And again
I say unto you that Elias has come already, concerning
       whom it is written
, Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way
       before me;
and they knew him not, and have done unto him, whatsoever they listed.
       Likewise shall also the Son of Man suffer of them.
But I say unto you, Who is Elias?
       Behold, this is Elias, whom I send to prepare the way before me.
Then the disciples
       understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist,
and also of another who
       should come and restore all things, as it is written by the prophets.

Joseph Smith Translation Mark 7: 10-12  Full well is it written of you, by
       the prophets whom ye have rejected. 
They testified these things of a truth,
       and their blood shall be upon you. Ye have kept not the ordinances of God;

       for Moses said, Honor thy father and thy mother; and whoso curseth father
       or mother, let him die the death
of the transgressor, as it is written in your
       law
; but ye keep not the law.

         since the Hebrew families and those traceable to proselytes, such as Achior
         the Ammonite . . . , and Ruth the Moabitess, and the mixed families which
         had come out of Egypt, had until then been enrolled . . . in the archives . . . ,
         Herod, because the family of the Israelites contributed nothing to him, and
         because he was goaded by his own consciousness of his base birth, burned
         the records
. . . of their families, thinking to appear noble if no one else was
         able by public documents . . . to trace his family to the patriarchs or proselytes,
         to the so--called gers . . . of mixed descent." -

in the Early Church, by Richard Bauckham, p. 358; from the  Translation of
         Eusebius - footnote #135.  "The Lukan Genealogy of Jesus" further mentions:
         "We know that Herod was sensitive about his Idumaean and therefore only half-
         Jewish origins, which many Jews regarded as disqualifying him from legitimate
         rule over Israel . . . , that his court historian Nicolaus of Damascus gave him
         a pure Jewish ancestry
. . . presumably as part of an attempt by Herod himself
         to conceal his origins, and that his fear of rivals to his throne led to decimation
         of the leading Jewish aristocratic families . . ." -

Joseph Smith Translation Luke 14: 35-37  Then certain of them came to him, saying,
       Good Master, we have Moses and the prophets, and whosoever shall live by them,
       shall he not have life?
  And Jesus answered, saying, Ye know not Moses, neither the
       prophets; for if ye had known them, ye would have believed on me; for to this intent
       they were written
. For I am sent that ye might have life. Therefore I will liken it unto
       salt
which is good;
But if the salt has lost its savor, wherewith shall it be seasoned?

Then said Jesus unto them, The law and the
       prophets testify of me
; yea, and all the prophets who have written, even until John,
       have foretold of these days.  [This very clear communication with Jesus Christ, does
       indicate that records had been kept and handed down from the time of the prophet
       Adam, until the time of John.  They were available to legal and religious administrators,

Doctrine and Covenants 93
    
Verily, thus saith the Lord: It shall come to pass that every soul
     who forsaketh his sins and cometh unto me, and calleth on
     my name, and obeyeth my voice, and keepeth my commandments,
     shall see my face and know that I am;
And that I am the true light
     that lighteth every man that cometh into the world; And that I am in
     the Father, and the Father in me, and the Father and I are one—

     The Father because he gave me of his fulness, and the Son because
     I was in the world and made flesh my tabernacle, and dwelt among
     the sons of men.  I was in the world and received of my Father, and the
       works of him were plainly manifest.

     And John saw and bore record of the fulness of my glory, and the fulness
     of John’s record is hereafter to be revealed.  And he bore record, saying:
     I saw his glory, that he was in the beginning, before the world was;
     Therefore, in the beginning the Word was, for he was the Word, even the
     messenger of salvation—

     The light and the Redeemer of the world; the Spirit of truth, who came into
     the world, because the world was made by him, and in him was the life of
     men and the light of men.  The worlds were made by him; men were made
     by him; all things were made by him, and through him, and of him.

     And I, John, bear record that I beheld his glory, as the glory of the Only Begotten
     of the Father, full of grace and truth, even the Spirit of truth, which came and dwelt
     in the flesh, and dwelt among us.

     And I, John, saw that he received not of the fulness at the first, but received
       grace for grace; And he received not of the fulness at first, but continued from
       grace to grace, until he received a fulness; And thus he was called the Son of God,
     because he received not of the fulness at the first.

     And I, John, bear record, and lo, the heavens were opened, and the Holy Ghost
     descended upon him in the form of a dove, and sat upon him, and there came a
     voice out of heaven saying: This is my beloved Son.

     And I, John, bear record that he received a fulness of the glory of the Father;
     And he received all power, both in heaven and on earth, and the glory of the
     Father was with him, for he dwelt in him.

     And it shall come to pass, that if you are faithful you shall receive the fulness
     of the record of John.  I give unto you these sayings that you may understand
     and know how to worship, and know what you worship, that you may come
     unto the Father in my name, and in due time receive of his fulness.  For if you
     keep my commandments you shall receive of his fulness, and be glorified
     in me as I am in the Father; therefore, I say unto you, you shall receive grace
     for grace.

     And now, verily I say unto you, I was in the beginning with the Father, and am
     the Firstborn; And all those who are begotten through me are partakers of the
       glory of the same, and are the church of the Firstborn.

     Ye were also in the beginning with the Father; that which is Spirit, even the Spirit
     of truth; And truth is knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as
     they are to come; And whatsoever is more or less than this is the spirit of that
     wicked one who was a liar from the beginning.  The Spirit of truth is of God.
     I am the Spirit of truth, and John bore record of me, saying: He received a fulness
     of truth, yea, even of all truth; And no man receiveth a fulness unless he keepeth
     his commandments.  He that keepeth his commandments receiveth truth and light,
     until he is glorified in truth and knoweth all things.  Man was also in the beginning
     with God.  Intelligence, or the light of truth, was not created or made, neither
     indeed can be.  All truth is independent in that sphere in which God has placed it,
     to act for itself, as all intelligence also; otherwise there is no existence.

     Behold, here is the agency of man, and here is the condemnation of man;
     because that which was from the beginning is plainly manifest unto them,
     and they receive not the light.  And every man whose spirit receiveth not
     the light is under condemnation.  For man is spirit.  The elements are eternal,
     and spirit and element, inseparably connected, receive a fulness of joy;
     And when separated, man cannot receive a fullness of joy.  The elements
     are the tabernacle of God; yea, man is the tabernacle of God, even temples;
     and whatsoever temple is defiled, God shall destroy that temple.

     The glory of God is intelligence, or, in other words, light and truth.  Light and truth
     forsake that evil one.  Every spirit of man was innocent in the beginning; and God
     having redeemed man from the fall, men became again, in their infant state,
       innocent before God.  And that wicked one cometh and taketh away light and truth,
     through disobedience, from the children of men, and because of the tradition of their
     fathers.  But I have commanded you to bring up your children in light and truth.
