Lineage from Adam?

S imply by presenting this page, I will discredit, for many, the genealogical information presented in my other charts. For the serious genealogist, attempting a lineage to Adam is outright foolish, because many of the personages cannot be proven to have existed or have been found outside the Bible, or outside Gaelic, Celtic or other legends. I acknowledge this. Only the names in bold, starting at #98 are listed in my alphabetical index of Marcotte ancestors.

This page was created for fun. It is, however, as accurate as I can make it, using the aforementioned sources. The lineage from Nos. 1 to 12 are based on the bible (Genesis). Nos. 13 to 100 are based largely on myth and legend (sources: Al O'Neill and Steven M. Lawson). Professional genealogists rarely accept any name that precede 450 AD, and generally discount the lineage from Genesis as unreliable from a genealogical point of view. Most of the middle section is based on Irish Pedigrees, among other varied sources, and family records as recorded in Burke's Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Peerage, Baronetage and Knightage (104th Ed.). There have been some reported discrepancies in published genealogies by Burke's (and others), but they are as reported by families and accepted by the Chief Herald of Ireland.

This lineage varies from the one I prepared using Davidic descent, in that this one has 10 fewer generations. The Davidic line was researched in far greater detail, by biblical scholars as they prepared a Davidic genealogy for Queen Victoria, between 1885-1902. The partial lineage from # 129-134 connecting Anne Couvent to the noble line of Robert de Joyeuse is attributable to the research of Roland-Yves Gagne and Laurent Kokanovsky, published in the Memoires de la Societe genealogique canadienne-Francaise, Vol. 57, no. 1, cahier 251, Spring 2007. This is not to say that Gagne and Kokanovsky in any way endorse attempting a lineage to Adam.

I have better things to do than engaging in theological or other arguments with anyone desirous of challenging this lineage, and will not therefore reply to email questioning the veracity of this lineage. Genealogy is just a hobby.
