Introduction
INTRODUCTION
Thomas Milton Tinney, Sr. (born 1941) is a 21st century specialist in genealogical research, who focuses primarily on worldwide collective genealogy and family history.  He has been recognized in both editions of Who's Who in Genealogy & Heraldry, Marquis Who's Who in the West (1998 - 1999), and Who's Who in America, (2000 through 2004).  His research papers are deposited with the Joseph Smith Jr. Collection at the University of Utah Marriott Library and Thomas Milton Tinney Papers, at the Utah State Historical Society.  He moved to Utah as a teenager and began a personal evaluation of all record sources, investigating and memorizing published and microform locations, thereby studying every available history, family history, and genealogy collection at the headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  He has lived in Colorado, Texas and California, with travel and research evaluation done in every state of the contiguous United States; research elsewhere worldwide and visits to Canada and Mexico. 
Tinney, Sr. has studied the Melvyl® system since acquiring an executed License Agreement with the Regents of the University of California, 02 March 1992.  He has also maintained a listing of family history and genealogy articles, as well as written about intelligent design, and published online Theology & Science: The Bible Is Scientific.

Pure Genealogy in The Body of Christ
Family Genealogy & History Book of Life

Book of Mormon - Ether 3:25 And when the Lord had said these words, he showed unto the brother of Jared all the inhabitants of the earth which had been, and also all that would be; and he withheld them not from his sight, even unto the ends of the earth.

Why not use the pattern provided, used in First Corinthians, King James Version (KJV)? Paul the Apostle and Sosthenes our brother wrote it to the church of God which is at Corinth. . . . 12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. . . . 14 For the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? 18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. 19 And if they were all one member, where were the body? 20 But now are they many members, yet but one body. 21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. 22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: 23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. 24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked. 25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. 26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. 27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. 28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. 29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? 30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? 31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

Now, having said all that, I state clearly that pure genealogy is the framework of descending bones in the patriarchal family of Christ, He being our Head. Family History, with all of its members, components and functions, is indeed the "flesh" on the genealogical bones in the patriarchal body of Christ.  The Family Genealogy and History Book of Life kept in Heaven and on earth.

Consider the process of growth of any infant, a child of God. Nothing is fitly framed and kept solid and secure, unless and until the bones are developed, upon which all organs and parts are bound together and nourished (bone marrow); otherwise, crippling and deformed side effects. Since building strong bones is part of a healthy lifestyle, (which includes avoiding smoking and alcohol, which are risk factors for developing osteoporosis), we should live the Word of Wisdom, keep the spirit of Elijah, and establish through our pedigree bones the virtuous, undefiled body of Christ. Else, all of our efforts and exertions, no matter how well intended, will be for naught, be overthrown, and destroyed.

Joseph Smith, Jr.; March 10, 1844;
History of the Church, 6:249-254
. . . Now for Elijah. The spirit, power, and calling of Elijah is, that ye have power to hold the key of the revelation, ordinances, oracles, powers and endowments of the fullness of the Melchizedek Priesthood and of the kingdom of God on the earth; and to receive, obtain, and perform all the ordinances belonging to the kingdom of God, even unto the turning of the hearts of the fathers unto the children, and the hearts of the children unto the fathers, even those who are in heaven. . . . I wish you to understand this subject, for it is important; and if you will receive it, this is the spirit of Elijah, that we redeem our dead, and connect ourselves with our fathers which are in heaven, and seal up our dead to come forth in the first resurrection; and here we want the power of Elijah to seal those who dwell on earth to those who dwell in heaven. This is the power of Elijah and the keys of the kingdom of Jehovah.

The Internet as a New and Perma-lasting
Book of Remembrance: Let's Face It. Let's Archive It.
Redefining Definitions - Definitions.

Wikipedia has redefined the use of "family history" on the Internet, when on 25 June 2013, it assimilated together, the Wikipedia articles: Genealogy and Family History, into just one article: Genealogy. What has gone unnoticed, at the same time, due to advances in technology, is the massive increase of individuals creating family history in real time, in the name of and through accounts in Facebook and other social media outlets. This disconnect is caused by the artificially created barriers used in family genealogy and history programs, to eviscerate bonding connections, online, between ancestry developed online in family trees, and those connections to more immediate, living family posterity, in the name of "privacy". This is actually totally bogus, as [The growing ubiquity of cell phones, especially the rise of smartphones, has made social networking just a finger tap away.]  [What people seem to want is not simply control over their privacy settings; they want control over their online reputations. But the idea that any of us can control our reputations is, of course, an unrealistic fantasy. The truth is we can’t possibly control what others say or know or think about us in a world of Facebook and Google, nor can we realistically demand that others give us the deference and respect to which we think we’re entitled. On the Internet, it turns out, we’re not entitled to demand any particular respect at all, and if others don’t have the empathy necessary to forgive our missteps, or the attention spans necessary to judge us in context, there’s nothing we can do about it.]

PewResearchCenter Social Networking Fact Sheet found that: [Social networking sites are increasingly used to keep up with close social ties] and that in particular, [Facebook revives “dormant” relationships]. Current total world population is now less than the over 7 billion global active mobile subscriptions. Social media sites are replacing the traditional newspapers, used in the past as a public forum for family related notices.

https://gsmaintelligence.com/
https://www.itu.int/en/ITU-D/Statistics/Documents/facts/ICTFactsFigures2015.pdf
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decline_of_newspapers

Paid newspapers are now in decline, and social media sites are becoming a key replacement, as a vital research resource, for present and future family genealogy and history. Social media mechanisms allow people to obtain information they want about relatives, through direct contact with one another, rather than using "cold start" Internet search boxes, and their ever changing "find" computer algorithms. Peer-to-peer authority replaces mass media general content data record sources, when reliance is given to personal contact data, from in-touch family and friends.

It is imperative therefore, for family units in the world, to keep accurate and complete family genealogy and history records, as well as teach reading and writing skills to all of their extended posterity. Preservation of records is very critical in mainlining an ongoing positive state of loving family cohesiveness;
to provide a caring social and spiritual continuity over time. The current social media ecosystem can pass-along content from social networks to more permanent archives. One way is the Internet Archive WayBack Machine with its Save Page Now feature. This allows a family to [Capture a web page as it appears now for use as a trusted citation in the future.] This will [archive a page instantly and get back a permanent URL for that page in the Wayback Machine.

Technology redefines definitions, when Family History is noted to be a significant part of social media sites. In particular, Facebook, with over 1.55 billion monthly active users, is determined now as "family friendly", because 83% of parents are friends with their teenager on Facebook. Facebook: Family History In Real Time. And then there is of course, Google, Twitter, Wikipedia, YouTube, and stringent Marquis Who's Who in America, etc. For example, as a collateral professional research tool, Wikipedia has now, far exceeded a Family History Library data set, located in Salt Lake City, Utah, by allowing easy access to comprehensive, online data sources for geographic localities, containing the pertinent past and present Geo-political connections, such as city, county, state and nation state historical interconnections, with all of their surrounding regions.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CREATING FAMILY GENEALOGY and HISTORY RECORDS, versus DOING YOUR FAMILY HISTORY and GENEALOGY? Facebook, Google, Twitter, Wikipedia, YouTube, and stringent Marquis Who's Who in America, carefully note, with commentary.

Answer: Currently, software programs provided conscientiously, by reputable MyHeritage.com, Ancestry.com, FamilySearch.org, etc., have many "bells and whistles" family trees. Yet, they are not professional, in that they do not provide that necessary and expedient process of research methodology, for the common man, woman or child, anxiously and cheerfully engaged in doing his or her family history research. It is nice to say that anyone can do family history and genealogy. And, it is correct. Anyone can do family history and genealogy. In fact, a thorough study of records online in family trees, shows conspicuously, that such is the case. Unfortunately, the proverbial cart is before the horse.

[George Puttenham's The Arte of English Poesie, 1589: Ye haue another manner of disordered speach, when ye misplace your words or clauses and set that before which should be behind. We call it in English prouerbe, the cart before the horse, the Greeks call it Histeron proteron, we name it the Preposterous.] So, we find treasured family records, stories and pictures, being haphazardly "verified", after the fact, with documents gathered, from whatever sources available, provided at the whim and whimsy of compilers. This means that any source documentation is smothered in mass loveliness, whose accuracy cannot be followed conscientiously and consistently, having additionally embellished and extraneous side bar links to irrelevant, unrelated data, a perpetual restudy.

On the other hand, we find that this site
prominently presents a serious question
for consideration; the key issue and overriding
Pertinent Question: What really defines credible
Family Genealogists and Generational Historians?

Answer: It is those genealogy research specialists who compile their family records for Jesus Christ, in preparation for His final resurrection of all mankind. He gives the spirit of Elijah to all those seeking out their own kindred, with all of their own weak abilities, through His Sacrifice, to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. It is credible that Christ obtained a physical body, which He could not have done were it not for the fall of Adam. The eternal Godhood of Jesus Christ mandated His obtaining a mortal body through the loins of Adam, from His mother Mary. It is a contemptuous insult to the glory, to the honor and majesty of Jesus Christ, to suggest any lesser evolutionary, atheistic ancestry, before the arrival of Adam and Eve upon the earth. Prayerfully, alleged bogus "scholarship", based upon theoretical DNA extrapolations, is thus understood, and then rejected. Mankind, the posterity of Adam and Eve, are preserved in Christ.

Why is this so? Because only those individuals who compile data for the intended purpose of providing documented evidence in an orderly manner, with each family unit considered as a building "block" of the kingdom of God, are sufficiently motivated to give the necessary time, talent, and means, to establish inclusive ties to all family members, and interpersonal relationship connections. Facts and sources are not an option; they are the very essential elements from which further actions can be prayerfully developed, to complete and extend the known evidences. To study and evaluate information out in one's mind, in an orderly, line upon line, structurally creative process, justification must be assured in references that can be restudied by other reasonable persons. Other researchers must be given information that can reduplicate the mental process and arrive at the same conclusion as the original author and researcher. If it is right, it will become mentally satisfying to professional genealogists and feel good. But if the evidence is not provided, it will seem questionable and doubts will arise in the mind, causing a sense of confusion; a stupor. This is because the compiled record comes partially from the opinion of the originating researcher, and not from the very records themselves. To remove this feeling of doubt and unease, the scholarly mind is compelled to seek for confirmation, by doing additional research, as deemed necessary, to replace doubt with substantiating facts, or to remove and eliminate all questionable connections, or assumptions, made by the originating author.

Original documents, public records, legal agreements and lawful transactions, online reproductions, letters, notes, family or personal diaries, authentically written historical journals, Bible records, photographs, newspaper articles, gravestones, monuments, etc. evaluated in the process of their presentation within pedigree compilations, are fundamentally necessary. The attaching or embedding of all [(D&C 132) covenants, contracts, bonds, obligations, oaths, vows, performances, connections, associations, or expectations], from Internet data sets, to online pedigrees, eliminates the ability for others, to hide, distort, or pontificate; i.e. to "exercise unrighteous dominion". It provides the first hand access to where the conclusion originated. Mandated initial embedding or attaching documentation does "hasten my work", by eliminating the need for youth to be highly trained in the mechanical aspects of different "style" guides; the source maintains scholarship. It also provides once and for all, a vital control over the circular process of myriads of reduplication entries found daily in LDS Temple Ordinance Work files, with its massive loss of time, talent, money and effort; by verification matching to the source documents themselves. Also, at the same time, by cross-comparison with the known historical recordings of various events and data sources, it does provide the capacity for systematic cleansing and elimination of currently published, unhistorical, fake, fictional, unsubstantiated, and intentionally fabricated Internet document sources.

I don’t see an Adam-ondi-Ahman priesthood meeting happening, if this work is not done properly, beforehand. It would be a useless, wasted event, and the whole earth will be cursed. Nevertheless, no major pedigree systems are currently developed, such as FamilySearch, MyHeritage, as well as Ancestry, to mention a few, using true patriarchal, descending format, except as those mentioned in the standard works of The Church of Jesus Chris of Latter-day Saints, which I have tried to follow, in my present online Internet compilations. It is all part of the genealogy connections, belonging in fact, to our first parents, Adam and Eve.  So, in the end, we are preparing for, and working for, the restoration of their posterity, to be sealed as one, living in harmony, through the commandments of Jesus Christ.
http://www.academic-genealogy.com/ancientandmoderngenealogies.htm

Restrictions on data of living posterity do not transmit the spirit of Elijah, directly to our cherished, precious children. In reality, this disallows or hides the fact that our sealings in the temples, in real time, make or create what I would call “scripture” families; in that all of our families and histories are or should be extensions of the standard works, in fact. This turns the hearts of the children to the fathers and the hearts of the fathers to the children; all being part of the ancient patriarchal priesthood; fathers, sons, mothers, daughters, sisters, brothers, husbands, wives, parents, children, etc.

LEGAL: COURT INFORMATION & RECORDS
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. Noted by John Adams, The Second President of the United States of America.

The U.S. Constitution is not a law, but it empowers the people to make laws. The Constitution acknowledges that the people have all power not reserved to itself. The Constitution is not law to us, but it makes provision for us whereby we can make laws. Where it provides that no one shall be hindered from worshiping God according to his own conscience, is a law.
No legislature can enact a law to prohibit it.
The Constitution provides to regulate bodies of men and not individuals. The only fault I find with the Constitution is, it is not broad enough to cover the whole ground. Although it provides that all men shall enjoy religious freedom, yet it does not provide the manner by which the freedom can be preserved, nor for the punishment of Government officers who refuse to protect the people in their religious rights, or punish those mobs, states, or communities who interfere with the rights of the people on account of their religion. Its sentiments are good, but it provides no means of enforcing them. It has but this one fault. Under its provision, a man or a people who are able to protect themselves can get along well enough; but those who have the misfortune to be weak or unpopular are left to the merciless rage of popular fury. The Constitution should contain a provision that every officer of the Government who should neglect or refuse to extend the protection guaranteed in the Constitution should be subject to capital punishment.
- President Joseph Smith, Jr.

NOTE:  A team writing in Nature estimated the most recent common ancestor of all current humans may have lived as recently as five thousand years ago.

time period:  2944 B.C. to 1994 B.C.
Lamech was 182 when Noah was born (Genesis 5: 28-29).  Moses 8: 12 And Noah was four hundred and fifty years old, and begat Japheth; and forty-two years afterward he begat Shem of her who was the mother of Japheth, and when he was five hundred years old he begat Ham. And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth. [2344 B.C.]  Archbishop James Ussher calculated the Flood date: 2349 B.C. Moses informs us that Noah lived after the flood 350 years; making him 950 years old when he died (Gen. 9:28-29).  Noah was 84 years old when Enos died, 176 when Cainan died, 234 when Mahalaleel died, 366 when Jared died, 595 when Lamech died, and 600 when Methuselah died. We can see from this that Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared, Methuselah, Lamech, and Noah all lived on the earth at the same time; and that Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared, Methuselah and Lamech, were all acquainted with both Adam and Noah.

To confirme the likelihood of which supposed truth, they doe many times digge vp whole and huge Timber trees which they conceiue at that deluge to haue beene ouerturned and whelmed:" Ether 13: 2  Confirms as fact that the Flood was worldwide in scope. From the Book of Mormon, after the waters had receded from off the face of this land (North and South America), it became a choice land above all other lands, a chosen land of the Lord; wherefore the Lord would have that all men should serve him who dwell upon the face thereof. In a wider sense all of North and South America are Zion (HC 6: 318-19). Moses 7: 43  Wherefore Enoch saw that Noah built an ark; and that the Lord smiled upon it, and held it in his own hand; but upon the residue of the wicked the floods came and swallowed them up. Nevertheless, it should be noted, that since the original altar used by Adam to offer animal sacrifice, was still extant and identified by Joseph Smith, Jr., that the flood waters covering the earth must have been gradual in process, in some areas, as it did not destroy all pre flood human artifacts. At least, the area of Jackson Country, Missouri, USA was not destroyed, suggesting a higher geological position, or raised elevation than at present.

SYNOPSIS: Biblical Genealogies -
"God" is All Knowing: Evolution and Big Bang Atheism

All responsible individuals can act through the light of Christ and do good, or choose an opposite course and create chaos. When Adam and Eve partook of the forbidden fruit, they not only brought death upon themselves, but upon all surrounding elements and all species. Pain and suffering are necessary conditions to understand opposites in this state of mortality. Because god knew Adam and Eve would fail, the Father sent His Son Jesus Christ to redeem all mankind, according to their own free agency, in doing good works to those with whom they associate, including keeping the earth habitable for all forms of life, and proper use of elements.

The celestial environment in the Garden of Eden, including the celestial bodies of Adam and Eve, had no radioactive decay: the death process. After the Fall, the vegetarian animals and some plants became carnivorous.  Radioactive decay, or the death process, did not begin upon this earth, prior to the partaking of the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden.  The process of decay and physical degeneration upon the earth was slower during the time of the early Patriarchs. That is why they are recorded with long lives.

Matthew J. Grow [Maxwell Institute, Brigham Young University,] notes: [Another heretofore unpublished item in Revelation Book 1 is "A Sample of pure Language given by Joseph the Seer." This revelation, which consists of a series of prophetic questions and divine answers and which was referred to by Orson Pratt in an 1855 sermon, identifies the "name [noted as AHMAN by Orson Pratt; i.e., the delightful man, or Man of Holiness: Give Him Awe or Ah, or Honor] of God in pure Language" as "Awman," the "being which made all things in all its parts."7 Christ is called the "Son Awman" and "the greatest of all the parts of Awman," while members of "the human family" are "the greatest parts of Awman Sons" (p. 265). ]  ["What is the name of angels in the pure language?" "Anglo-man."]

The pure language of Adam, as above recorded, identifies that to be part of god, one must continue to be written in the Lamb's Book of Life or Book of Remembrance.  Thus, keeping a genealogy in both the Old and New Testament, was maintaining, through the genealogies of the fathers, an umbilical chord connection between Almighty God, the Father of all the spirit children sent here upon this earth; the members of the "human family" being "the greatest parts of Awman Sons", or sons [and daughters] of Our Eternal Lord and Master, the very holy Jesus Christ, the YHWH god of the Septuagint House of Israel.  Or, as noted in Revelation 3:5 "He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels." Thus, it is absolutely obvious that the Bible is not complete and much of its contents have been destroyed over the years; poorly recorded (defective languages), with some intentional errors.

Ancient written language has degenerated over time, as former Adamic language structure is closer to computer language codes used to communicate within and between modern electronic devices, rather than the more distorted, defective, and unorganized live human usage, coming from the Tower of Babel. It was more efficient, with characters representing concepts as well as individual word formations, the "longer and more complex ideas — even paragraphs", coming from the structural position of the symbol itself, in relation to the points of intersection of its composite subset of lines, curves, or dot points used for giving a particular directional emphasis. Once a concept was presented, by a simple series of lines or other marks, it could be magnified in scope to represent understanding associated with the predetermined areas of consideration, such as time, astronomy, priesthood, location, relationship, etc.

Almost all of the posterity of Adam and Eve, have had various changes in gene frequency within descending populations over a period of approximately 6,000 years. Before the modern era, there was a population bottleneck (or genetic bottleneck) during the time of Noah and the world wide flood, an evolutionary event in which a significant, almost total percentage of the human population or species was killed, and thus as a society, completely prevented from reproducing. [A population's genetic variation can be greatly reduced by a bottleneck, and even beneficial adaptations may be permanently eliminated. The loss of variation leaves the surviving population vulnerable to any new selection pressures such as disease, climate change or shift in the available food source, because adapting in response to environmental changes requires sufficient genetic variation in the population for natural selection to take place.] Thus, as shown by the Holy Scripture, the process of decay and degeneration was slower, accepting the age and longevity recorded for the early Patriarchs from Adam to Noah.

From current observations of world homo sapiens population groups (Latin: "wise man" or "knowing man"), one obvious alteration was change in skin pigmentation, as variations in [skin color are mainly of genetic origin and are associated with sunlight,] [Some types of fungi, called radiotrophic fungi, appear to be able to use melanin as a photosynthetic pigment that enables them to capture gamma rays and harness its energy for growth.] [In humans, melanin is the primary determinant of skin color. It is also found in hair, the pigmented tissue underlying the iris of the eye, and the stria vascularis of the inner ear. In the brain, tissues with melanin include the medulla and zona reticularis of the adrenal gland, and pigment-bearing neurons within areas of the brainstem, such as the locus coeruleus and the substantia nigra.]

[Photoprotection of the human skin is achieved by extremely efficient internal conversion of DNA, proteins and melanin. Internal conversion is a photochemical process that converts the energy of the UV photon into small amounts of heat. This small amount of heat is harmless.]  However, according to the ages listed in the Biblical account, (with the climate change), there appears to have been a significant loss in the ability of human melanin to capture sunlight in such a way as to harness its energy for growth; or, photosynthetic pigment (converting light into biochemical energy).

Big bang and evolutionary atheistic religious theories include chaotic behavior " in which even the slightest uncertainty about initial conditions leads to vast uncertainty about outcomes", since there is no God control. Jesus Christ, the Only Heir Son of God, representing the Heavenly King, descended below all things, and comprehends all things in the Universe; permeating from the Throne of God, the light of truth, or the light of Christ, which is the principal constituent medium in the stars, the sun, moon and earth, as well as throughout all space and all forms of life, including the temporal life of all mankind and its cognizant understanding.

Were you to consider the life of Christ, and seriously evaluate His stated gifts and powers, as the literal son of God, the Eternal Father, from a scientific standpoint: He has infinite mass density. His formed words then control all elements. Walking on water, passing through walls with a resurrected physical body, raising the dead and healing the sick, are simply the effects of an infinite mass density in control of all matter that is more coarse, and in a less refined and pure state. [And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.]  Singularity of purpose.

A Being having infinite mass density would be essentially a controlled, emitting supernova in human form, that would consciously be able to, like our sun, radiate constant energy levels that would restore and maintain all life and creations made by His hand, overriding all the projected effects of the second law of thermodynamics; holding the keys of death, hell, the grave, and every variation of immortality and eternal lives. Or, in other words, the expanding universe, the content of which is a set of all points that contain space and matter jointly, or cardinal elements, are ever expanding and increasing the glory of god its Creator; meaning, the mass body of god must be infinitely increasing as it records both control codes and the Universe "history". Spirit is matter, only more refined and pure, infinitesimal and eternal in nature, upon which can be written, by the power of the Holy Ghost, all of the characteristics and attributes of Almighty god, through the grace of His son the Lord Jesus Christ. Write-once, read many (WORM) approach to holographic data storage provides mental similarity. [But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.] [Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.] King James Version

[Holograms can theoretically store one bit per cubic block the size of the wavelength of light in writing.] [Unlike current storage technologies that record and read one data bit at a time, holographic memory writes and reads data in parallel in a single flash of light.] [Memory storage density is a measure of the quantity of information bits that can be stored on a given length of track, area of surface, or in a given volume of a computer storage medium. Generally, higher density is more desirable, for it allows greater volumes of data to be stored in the same physical space. Density therefore has a direct relationship to storage capacity of a given medium.]

 "Thus I, Abraham, talked with the Lord, face to face, as one man talketh with another; and he told me of the works which his hands had made; And he said unto me: My son, my son (and his hand was stretched out), behold I will show you all these. And he put his hand upon mine eyes, and I saw those things which his hands had made, which were many; and they multiplied before mine eyes, and I could not see the end thereof." This suggests that the whole body of God is a storage repository; that ultimately, we think with our whole body, as we are created in the image of god, both man and woman. (In this case, as related to humanity, god being defined as eternal, immortal husband and wife.) This experience suggests to all thinking minds, that to develop a storage system that could even, for a beginning, store within the framework of a human body, the code to run and maintain the Milky Way, let alone the other billions of galaxies in the observable universe as we perceive it, would most certainly require having an infinite mass density.  Humans have about 100 trillion cells each, that could be theoretically adapted system wide [whole body], for use in digital-biological memory storage integration.

Science deals in its studies with the nature of and effects found in more coarse matter. On the other side of the sliding scale, the "religion" portion of matter deals with "spirit" that is more refined and pure; namely, all element that has been created by an Eternal God and whose form is eternal within itself, such as our contained spirits, or as stated in Genesis, "These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. "  Bottom Line: Every form of life has a "spirit" existence, prior to physical reality, an eternal DNA that cannot be changed over time or space; composed of more refined and pure matter, that cannot be seen by the human eye unaided. [The physics of most models of grand unification cannot be discovered directly at particle colliders because the new particles they predict have masses at the so-called GUT scale which lies few orders of magnitude below the Planck scale and thus far beyond the reach of man-made collision experiments. . . . As of 2010 [update], there is still no hard evidence that nature is described by a Grand Unified Theory]  Except, In the beginning, God . . .

Abraham learns about the sun, moon, and stars by means of the Urim and Thummim—The Lord reveals to him the eternal nature of spirits—He learns of pre-earth life, foreordination, the Creation, the choosing of a Redeemer, and the second estate of man.

Plague in the Ancient World: A Study from Thucydides to Justinian
[The Athenian plague (430-26 B.C.) originated in Ethiopia, and from there spread throughout Egypt and Greece.] . . .
[the Antonine plague, occurred during the reign of Marcus Aurelius (161-180 A.D.). It was brought back by soldiers returning from Seleucia, and before it abated, it had affected Asia Minor, Egypt, Greece, and Italy. ] . . .
[Another plague occurred during the reigns of Decius (249-251 A.D.) and Gallus (251-253 A.D.). This pestilence broke out in Egypt in 251, and from there infected the entire empire. Its mortality rate severely depleted the ranks of the army, and caused massive labor shortages. The plague was still raging in 270, when it caused the death of the emperor Claudius Gothicus (268-270).] . . .

The History of Plague – Part 1. The Three Great Pandemics . . .
[In epidemics plague is transmitted to humans by the bite of the Oriental or Indian rat flea and the human flea. . . . Plague is also transmissible person to person when in its pneumonic form.] From a DNA Testing standpoint, it is significant to note human interaction, by commerce and physical contacts.  [The three great plague pandemics had different geographic origins and paths of spread. {The major Plague epidemics occurred in 540 at Pelusium, Egypt, reached Constantinople in 542 and spread into Europe and Asia (the Plague of Justinian) in the following decade}. The Justinian Plague of 541 started in central Africa and spread to Egypt and the Mediterranean. {Around 1330 Plague affected the local residents of the Orient and following the elaborate trade routes, established in the previous two centuries, made its way west. By 1345, it was in the lower Volga; by 1346 Astrakhan, the Caucasus, and Azerbijian; by 1346 Constantinople and the Byzantine Empire; late autumn 1347 Alexandria, Egypt and southward along the Nile; India & what is now the middle east }. {14th century Europe, following the caravan routes, it was in the lower Volga River basin in 1345, the Caucasus and Crimea by 1346, Constantinople by 1347, Alexandria in the autumn of 1347, Cyprus and Sicily in that year, Italy by winter 1347, Marseilles by January of 1348, Paris in spring 1348, | Reports of another Genoese merchant ship carrying the disease to Marseilles came in January 1348. By that summer, the Plague reached Paris. It then spread east to Germany and north to England, reaching London in December 1348. During this time it came to be known by the names: the Great Dying, das Grosse Sterben, the Plague of Justinian, and Magna Mortalis. At that time, the population of England was estimated to be about four million, yet within a mere two and a half years about one third of them had died. | followed by Germany and the Low Countries in that year, Norway in May 1349, eastern Europe by 1350, and finally Russia in 1351, but smaller outbreaks continued for about 200 more years; Austria in 1711; the Balkans from 1770-1772.} The Black Death of 1347 originated in Asia and spread to the Crimea then Europe and Russia. {The last major pandemic ran from 1855-1896 worldwide, but mostly in China and India, wherein more than 12 million died.}  The third pandemic, that of 1894, originated in Yunnan, China, and spread to Hong Kong and India, then to the rest of the world] {Manchuria in 1910–1911 witnessed about 60,000 deaths due to pneumonic Plague with a repeat in 1920–1921; and a minor outbreak occurred as recently as the summer of 1994 in Surat, India closely following an earthquake in September 1993. . . . the government of India did not recognize the presence of the disease until several hundred thousand people had fled the region.}

Origins of HIV and the AIDS Pandemic
[Originating in Cameroon and first recognized as a disease in 1981, the earliest documented case is believed to be in 1959 in the Congo. As of 2011 at least 60 million people had been infected by AIDS and 25 million had died. Today its impact varies widely across the world—while in 2008 an estimated 1.2 million Americans had HIV, Sub-Saharan Africa alone was home to 22.9 million cases, with one in five adults infected. About 35.3 million people were believed to have HIV in 2012.]

Native populations, thousands of miles away from sources of  the origin of infections died, validating extensive, worldwide contacts of humans, one with another, due to migrations, via trade routes, or from military contacts from armies in distant lands. Thus, from this factual information alone, obvious opportunities for physical associations among disparate family groups did arise, allowing for the [given occasional mating between individuals of different identities, then a small  number of generations is likely required for individuals to have a subset of their ancestors with identities different than their own.] It Just Does Not Add Up, that using DNA Testing, can arbitrarily, without having any real scientific validity, recreate hypothetically, isolated geographic ethnic origins, when they DO NOT represent the reality of facts of social contacts in ancient to modern history. However, for future generations, DNA Testing holds out great promise in maintaining international family and societal relationships, for future descendants, involved with world travel, residency changes, and multi-national record keeping. DNA Testing can become especially important, as a key method for administratively monitoring sudden migration changes, caused by global warfare dislocation, nation-to nation commerce, & Megacities growth.

Christmas Spirit Genealogy:
The Atonement of Jesus Christ

The greatest gift that Jesus Christ gave the world was His Life. "For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive." Thus, validity [but not the accuracy] of genealogies in the Bible, are established. "For behold, I, God, have suffered these things for all, that they might not suffer if they would repent; But if they would not repent they must suffer even as I; Which suffering caused myself, even God, the greatest of all, to tremble because of pain, and to bleed at every pore, and to suffer both body and spirit—and would that I might not drink the bitter cup, and shrink— Nevertheless, glory be to the Father, and I partook and finished my preparations unto the children of men. Wherefore, I command you again to repent, lest I humble you with my almighty power; and that you confess your sins, lest you suffer these punishments of which I have spoken, of which in the smallest, yea, even in the least degree you have tasted at the time I withdrew my Spirit."

Jesus Christ Himself states: " lest you suffer these punishments of which I have spoken, of which in the smallest, yea, even in the least degree you have tasted at the time I withdrew my Spirit." "And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God." The Messiah spoke: "Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you." Why could not the Comforter, or Holy Ghost come unto them? Because it had descended upon Jesus Christ and remained with Him thereafter.

The King of the Jews in the garden of Gethsemane, suffered the punishment of rejection by God the Father, rightfully pronounced upon Adam and Eve, and all of their posterity, when they were cast out from the garden of Eden, being intentionally disobedient. The Only Begotten Son of God, who had not sinned, intervened. "Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve. And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them. And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money. And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them in the absence of the multitude." The King of Zion and the rejected Rock of Heaven, "came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him." "And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground." The protecting power of the Holy Ghost, the Comforter, had to be withdrawn, causing the greatest of all, to tremble because of pain, and to bleed at every pore, and to suffer both body and spirit. The God of the Universe, even Jesus Christ, was now independently acting in His capacity as a Man; subject to death.

"Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him. And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe, And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands. Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him. Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man! When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him." [Verified by The Pilate Stone.] http://www.bible-history.com/empires/pilate.html

"Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? (Aramaic) that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" The Lord quotes words from the twenty-second psalm, being applicable; He, the suffering and foreordained sacrifice: a a god experiencing total agony of soul.
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+22&version=KJV

Testimonium Flavianum, by Josephus, appears authentic. "About this time there lived Jesus, a wise man, if indeed one ought to call him a man. For he was one who performed surprising deeds and was a teacher of such people as accept the truth gladly. He won over many Jews and many of the Greeks. He was the Messiah. And when, upon the accusation of the principal men among us, Pilate had condemned him to a cross, those who had first come to love him did not cease. He appeared to them spending a third day restored to life, for the prophets of God had foretold these things and a thousand other marvels about him. And the tribe of the Christians, so called after him, has still to this day not disappeared."

This document was clearly written by a Jew, providing a Jewish viewpoint. It states that "Pilate had condemned him to a cross", which does not match the gospel washing of the hands to avoid responsibility, done by the Roman Governor. It indicates that Josephus could not write down the unthinkable idea, that the Messiah was murdered by the hand of the Jewish Nation, even though his death came by "the accusation of the principal men among us" . Eat and drink this Sabbath, the Sacrament; do it in memory of the Living Life. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Quotes from Kings James Bible; Doctrine & Covenants; Josephus.

RESEARCH NOTES:
How Do I Begin To Document and File Family History?
An Introduction
http://academic-genealogy.com/documentfilefamilyhistory.htm
. . .
"The Family: A Proclamation to the World": . . . "marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children. . . . that God’s commandment for His children to multiply and replenish the earth remains in force. . . . Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan"; also D&C 131: "Celestial marriage is essential to exaltation in the highest heaven". {In the celestial glory there are three heavens or degrees; And in order to obtain the highest, a man must enter into this order of the priesthood [meaning the new and everlasting covenant of marriage]; And if he does not, he cannot obtain it.} The Messiah, obeying the will of the Father and fulfilling all righteousness, entered into this order of the priesthood [the new and everlasting covenant of marriage]; knowing thereby that He was sealed up unto eternal life, by revelation and the spirit of prophecy, through the power of the Holy Priesthood; Christ sitting upon the throne at the right hand of the Father. [To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.]

Family of Jesus Christ (Son Ahman): Jesus
http://academic-genealogy.com/ancientandmoderngenealogies.htm#002
Marriage: John 20: 17-18 Jesus Christ asked Mary Magdalene to refrain herself from attempting to touch or hold (chibuk) Him, at that time. Jesus had not yet ascended unto the Father. Negiah, meaning "contact" or "connection" or "touch" in Hebrew, is a notion in Jewish law (Halakha) that restricts (or forbids) physical contact with, or touching of, a member of the opposite sex, except for one's spouse, and immediate family. When Mary Magdalene was asked by Jesus to speak to the brethren: "I ascend unto my Father . . . ", women needed a husband's authorized permission, to leave home, or to legally testify in family related matters.

BYU Studies - History of the Church: HC: Volume 5, Chapter 19; page 360 - 363. So plain was the vision, that I actually saw men, before they had ascended from the tomb, as though they were getting up slowly. They took each other by the hand and said to each other, "My father, my son, my mother, my daughter, my brother, my sister." And when the voice calls for the dead to arise, suppose I am laid by the side of my father, what would be the first joy of my heart? To meet my father, my mother, my brother, my sister; and when they are by my side, I embrace them and they me. This statement by the Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr., gives a proper understanding to the words of Jesus Christ: Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her.

Did Jesus have a wife? It’s a question experts, researchers and believers have debated for years. A new study may point toward “yes.”

Fathers Leading the Family Genealogy and History Community, by Following the Example of Father Abraham
 
This being the month of June, it is appropriate to mention that Father's Day will be presented as an event for family involvement. Father's Day is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society. Many countries celebrate it on the third Sunday of June, though it is also celebrated widely on other days by many other countries.
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Father's_Day

On Tuesday, March 4, 2014, James Tanner gave his opinion about "Finding the Genealogy Community"
 http://genealogysstar.blogspot.com/2014/03/finding-genealogy-community.html
 
James Tanner then wrote: The Elements of Research -- Part Seven: Can You Reproduce It? . . . "Why am I writing all this about research? Apparently, there is a limited amount of it around and what there is hasn't seemed to make much of an impact on our greater genealogical community. Maybe that is the reason."
 http://genealogysstar.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-elements-of-research-part-seven-can.html
 
Anyone who has read the Bible and evaluated the pedigrees therein, would know for a fact that from both the religious and secular history [King lists] contained therein, [due to the exceedingly sparse mention of women in the said records], that absolutely, fundamentally, as, it is demonstrated by the records themselves, (The Book of Mormon not excluded), that record keeping was an inherent male duty and obligation. To define the greater group of genealogists, family historians, generational historians, hobby enthusiasts and professionals, it must be clarified once and for all that the Father in the family, (like Abraham of old, who kept the handed down records in his day), is accountable and responsible for his family's salvation. Thus, from an administrative standpoint, all natural, patriarchal, and priesthood fathers, irrespective of religious affiliations, (those human beings descending from Adam and Eve), are the inherent leaders who are responsible for the status and functioning of the worldwide genealogy and family history community. How can they fulfill this weighty male obligation and unavoidable responsibility for which accountability exists? By following the example of Abraham. [The Book of Abraham, Chapter 1, Verse 31: But the records of the fathers, even the patriarchs, concerning the right of Priesthood, the Lord my God preserved in mine own hands; therefore a knowledge of the beginning of the creation, and also of the planets, and of the stars, as they were made known unto the fathers, have I kept even unto this day, and I shall endeavor to write some of these things upon this record, for the benefit of my posterity that shall come after me.  . . . The Book of Abraham, Chapter 2, Verse 10: And I will bless them through thy name; for as many as receive this Gospel shall be called after thy name, and shall be accounted thy seed, and shall rise up and bless thee, as their father]
 
Elder, Dean L. Larsen, mentioned as "Of the Presidency of the First Quorum of the Seventy", May 1980 issue of The Ensign, wrote about "Self-Accountability and Human Progress".
 https://www.lds.org/ensign/1980/05/self-accountability-and-human-progress?lang=eng

M. Russell Ballard, "Of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles", provides insight, in the June 2015 issue of The New Era, by noting information concerning "How Are Missionaries Called?"
 https://www.lds.org/new-era/2015/06/how-are-missionaries-called?lang=eng  

Following in the footsteps of all of the general authorities, fathers, prayerfully concerned about their own eternal salvation, (as well as that of their immediate and extended families), will show great diligence in reviewing the records of the deceased; as if they are still "present", though physically deceased. This gives to the fathers, the unique opportunity to know them (through all of the acquired records) personally, and to be able to renew them and note their posterity, (through the preservation of correct records). Thus, we, as fathers, love them and support them in their own continued progress, which is forever intertwined with our present family happiness and joy, as all are part of an endless chain of life.
 
This "genealogical perspective" is a scientific method of looking to the past, by using a "reverse" process of economic projection methodology; i.e., [an absent or imagined person (prior to genealogical confirmation from primary source documentation) is figured forth -- the "face created" as the Greek suggests -- in words, as if present (after the pedigree is established according to the current genealogical proof standard).]  In other words, extrapolating trends into the past, are a function of conditions, characteristics and data records, endogenous to the current variables in our family performance. It reassigns and restores one's ancestry to its rightful position and "mission" as honored parentage. We come to understand ourselves better through them, being sealed to them forever by the virtue in Jesus Christ; His DNA resurrection power.
