Is there a way to report typos and errors in "Biblical People"?

If not, please note that "Nahash (father of Abigail) — son of Itra and the father of Abigail" is shown as female in many of the charts. Furthermore, in a number of the family trees, it seems to present "Nahash (father of Abigail)" as married to Jesse, father of David. In fact, it further shows that Abigail, wife of David, is the product of their union.

Maybe I'm mis-understanding the charts, but if not this might be a good one to fix. 2 Samuel 17:25 is a bit helpful on this.

Thanks, Shawn

P.S. The Anchor Yale BIble Dictionary (V1, p 16) entry for Abigail at point "2. Sister of David ..." is instructive on this matter. However, if Nahash is thought to be female, then the title "(father of Abigail)" should probably be removed.

Thanks for the report; I've forwarded it to the correct team.
