Each of the stars represents exactly one missing ancestor. Naturally, there are occasional disagreements on the exact validity of a specific name or parentage, but this is the general gist.

I'll probably republish this entire post some months hence with more information about each generation, as well as sources.

P.S. By the way, this is the genetic genealogy. If we count who taught Torah to whom, there are no missing links.

Nice, very nice.

I can trace my ancestors to the 1500's, and my wife has a line to the 800's, but that's nothing compared to yours.

My mother-in-law will be 99 in less than two months and has lived her entire life (except for some travel) within a 5 mile radius. My mother is 97 and has moved many times, before and after marriage, and she has lived in the states of Missouri, Oklahoma, Arizona, and Colorado. I prepared a summary map of her relocations for her 95th birthday, and it was interesting that every-other move she made was to the same small town of Minco, Oklahoma.

Family history is one of the many hobbies my wife and I enjoy.

The wikipedia entry on Rashi has Rav Yohanan Hasandlar as a 4th generation descendant of Raban Gamliel, and you have him as a 3rd generation descendant. Wikipedia is notoriously inaccurate at times, but I thought I would point out the discrepancy. Impressive list.

John,

Yes, there will be some disagreements as to the specifics in some cases. Often this is due to the fact that a grandson is often called a son back in the old times.
