I find the List of Nephews in the Bible less that obvious - Aaron is the nephew of Amminadab etc. I initially read it as Aaron has as nephews. ... if others make the same error this needs clarification in presentation.

Err 4



There is nothing in the family tree to justify:

  • the listing of brothers but not sister . . . as women are generally omitted in the genealogies, when they are mentioned they should be highlighted
  • there is nothing to justify labeling Moses, Aaron, et.al. as both cousins and nephew. If there is an alternative family tree there needs to be an explicit reference to it so that one can verify all claimed relationships  

Err 3

Hi MJ:

Thank you for the feedback. I have created a case to explore the best way to handle this.

To handle the first issue of the direction of the relationship, I will be placing an illustrative example at the top of the list. For example:

The problems with our cousin data will take a bit more time to clean up, but I have created a case for this.
