In some religions they focus on mothers and their ancestry, in others -like christianism & islam- the male is quite important. I am always seaching for the mother of a mother, maybe it's because I am a biologist with much interest in the human species, especially their behaviour by nature & nurture... And isn't it the mother that spents most of her time in elevation & bringing up to respectful representatives of the only species that can speak, write, read & listen to one another? groeten van Jeannette.
Very interesting project for those who prefer to discover balanced genealogy...
Robert Klahn, very interesting. Richard was my 18th great uncle and his Brother, King Edward IV, was my 17th great grandfather.

and let us review also this:
Your name does not come out readable, here, but when I go to your profile it is.
I agree with what you are saying, about the mother being the one with the children. Long ago I read, the mother is the one most responsible for how well the child's education goes. Which is why I say, if you want your grandchildren educated, educate your daughters.
<<Reg, depending on how you see the bible, how can a tree go back further than Adam?>>
Some trees which were fabricated to appease kings and princes go back to Adam, (see lines of Welsh princes)
There are also a number of Norman trees that go back to Norse gods.
There is also a published tree which shows Adams forefathers –
Why must it be biblical?
Any tree going back to Adam must be regarded as fantasy.
You can not claim them being correct, even the biblical tree cannot be claimed as correct. After all you have take into account when it was written and why.
I think that this comment may well upset a number of people – but it has to be said.
I was thinking of more modern thinking. I hadn't considered the old lines drawn up to please those in power. That does make sense. I agree with you and Kaija, in older cases to satisfy the egos of the powerful, today for fun.
I haven't seen the Norse lines, but I had just mentioned to my wife some that go back to Greek gods, and how some probably go back to the Norse.
Wait a minute, Norman is French in origin, Norse is Germanic. Are you trying to make me think? This is my day off... why should I have to think?
Oh, yeah, I'm allowed to think on my own time. Ok, thanks.

I think you have missed out on your History classes :-(
The Normans were people of norse ancestry who settled in northern France.
The Normans (in French: Normands; in Latin Nortmanni; in German: Normannen) were the people who gave their name to Normandy, a region in northern France. They were descended from North Germanic Norse Viking conquerors of the territory and the native population of Germanic Frankish and Gallo-Roman stock. Their identity emerged initially in the first half of the 10th century, and gradually evolved over succeeding centuries.
Yeah, I know the Normans were from Northern France, and Northern France is next door to Germany. And I know there has been a lot of crossing over, not only in that area but all over. I knew it before I started in genealogy decades ago, but looking at the lines here it hits like a Mack Truck. BTW, the Mack Truck reference is also an old one. With lines going through Europe into the Middle East and around I can see that.
Which is why the "Are you trying to make me think..." on my day off was humor. After all, I learned back in high school, now nearly a half century ago, that the Roman Gods were derived from the Greeks. Then the college prof who explained that Sanscrit and English have the same roots in the Caucasus mountains, I get it that it runs all over the place. Now one more turn I have to think about. On my day off yet, that's too much to ask. I'd scream, but in cyberspace no one can hear you scream.
