The GENI tree needs not be "the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth", after all this is also one area where we are presenting our assumptions.

But in such delicate issues as the immediate descendants of Jesus of Nazareth it is only fair to expect that whoever updates the profiles of his descendants would also add sources used. This would increase the value of these hypothesized persons at least a bit. Let us try to be objective in our search!

I agree with you in principle, but please understand that the vast majority of Geni users, and genealogists in general, don't HAVE sources. At best they blindly copy-paste some GEDCOM file, that they found on the internet into their own tree, which eventually gets uploaded to Geni [a dozen times].

If you look at the profile for Jesus of Nazareth, under Discussions, you will see that this issue is of and on, constantly being debated. The vast majority of objections are for purely theological reasons, not historical.
