This animation was created to help visualize the lineage and the early ancestry of the human race, from Adam and Eve, through to the Tribes of Israel, a total of 25 generations, covering about 2260 years. Joseph's generation was around 1964 B.C. Being that you have THOUSANDS of direct ancestors, chances are you descend from several of the names in this family tree. This genealogy is detailed in various parts of the Holy Scriptures, as well as ancient records, artifacts, and tombs, and these lineages are being corroborated by DNA analysis.
Note: This is by no means a complete genealogy of the first 25 generations, my emphasis being on the lineage of the Tribes of Israel. I tried to determine where some of the other tribes lived and which nations they founded, just as a point of interest. If you have information to contribute, or corrections, please comment below.
