These charts present the principal lines descended from King David. They do not include all descendants but enable connections to be traced. The charts are arranged such that summary charts precede more detailed expansions of families in subsequent charts.The relationships shown are derived from a consensus of the sources which may vary as to the exact relationships. In some cases several generations may be unidentified and descent is based on tradition or genealogical-mathematical calculation of the most likely relationships. Books in the Bibliography provide explanations for these various theories.Some of the critical genealogical research of Rabbi Shlomo Englard (Bnei Brak, Israel) has been incorporated in these charts.

Spelling of names:
Most names are transcribed from Hebrew using a convention where the letters “Khet” or “Khaf” are written as “kh” rather than the common “ch” which might be confused with the English pronunciation such as in the word “Catch”. Exceptions are common usage such “Charlap” instead of “Kharlap”; “Chassidim” instead of “Khassidim”.
