It all goes back to the traditional game of musical chairs a.k.a. going to Jerusalem, know all over the world; namely, teaching from primary ages to adults, that in the end, the ultimate and only "seat" of authority for the family is the Father of us all, as noted in the life and example of Jesus Christ.  Traditionally, Jewish circumcision ceremonies have a chair set aside for the use of the prophet Elijah. Passover Seder includes "opening the door for Elijah" which expresses trust in the protection of an almighty, caring, heavenly father (G-d).  I suggest, in a family setting, celebrate every April 3rd, the arrival of Elijah, in the Kirtland, Ohio temple. Actively promote the month of April as worldwide family history month.  Include on a global basis, annual youth "Hill Cumorah" style pageants near every temple ground on the globe, promoting family history, as well as the birth of Christ and the restoration of His Church (April 6th); followed by Easter.  Integrate this with all media outlet connections, through movies, Internet, digital, or other audio and visual recordings, within campus facilities related to Brigham Young University, other related institutes of religion, seminaries, and supporting genealogical and family history organizations.  Create Elijah presentations of the quality in the music of composer Felix Mendelssohn.  Produce teen video games for international distribution, that truly reflect the life and times of a former prophet, holding the sealing keys of the priesthood, whose activities exceed those of current fictional super heroes; a true living "superman".  Coordinate these activities by the perpetual establishment of the "Chair of Elijah" at BYU, reserved rightfully for worthy patriarchal descendants (formerly, all properly sustained as presiding church patriarchs, having general authority status; the ecclesiastical title of: prophet, seer and revelator) of the martyr Hyrum Smith.  Teach the Bible from the standpoint of a living record, containing memories of our real fathers, mothers and distant relatives; soon to be reconnected together again with us, genealogically studied and evaluated by Joseph Smith, Jr., and other early church leaders, as so carefully noted in the Lectures On Faith (formerly officially part of the Doctrine & Covenants).  Present Book of Remembrance entries (for FamilySearch, Family Tree Temple Ordinance submission), by the local church congregation, to every family at the time they have a new member baptized or have any children blessed.  Promote family Books of Remembrance, on a worldwide interfaith basis, for all established congregational units.

(1) UPDATED: The Lord JESUS CHRIST, Jews, The House of Joseph, Gentiles and Heathens: Careful study of the TINNEY SURNAME
from worldwide origins. Introduction

"The mind or the intelligence which man possesses is co-equal with God himself." Therefore, to think is a manifestation of godliness. Purely human, inculcates the immortality of the spirit of man, which comprehends God himself as a self-existent being, the great "I Am that I Am". It is one of the most famous Bible verses, given to Moses by God; by the great Jehovah, even Jesus the Christ, who testified: "Before Abraham was, I am." Indeed, the great gods Ahman and YHWH (Son Ahman), together made man out of the earth and put into him Adam's spirit, and so became a living body. "The intelligence of spirits had not beginning, neither will it have an end. That is good logic." In other words, every human, every man, woman, or even little children can speak, can say this great truth: "I think, therefore I AM." [The Latin phrase cogito ergo sum [a] (/ˈkoʊɡɨtoʊ ˈɜrɡoʊ ˈsʌm/, also /ˈkɒɡɨtoʊ/, [b] "I think, therefore I am") is a philosophical proposition by René Descartes. The simple meaning is that thinking about one’s existence proves—in and of itself—that an "I" exists to do the thinking. This proposition became a fundamental element of Western philosophy, as it was perceived to form a foundation for all knowledge. While other knowledge could be a figment of imagination, deception or mistake, the very act of doubting one's own existence arguably serves as proof of the reality of one's own existence, or at least of one's thought.]

(2) UPDATED: World Ancestry - Roots In Antiquity:
Ancient To Modern Genealogy and Family History

Ancient origins of genealogy and family history records, as traced down to modern times, from all available concurrent documented findings, in both religious scriptures and related secular records. There was a Book of Remembrance kept by Adam & Eve and their descendants. Our Bible (s) are indeed a purely human invention; that is, it was initiated by Ahman, a God who once was a man as we are now. Yes, the Bible is indeed of purely human, yet godly invention; given, beginning with the first earthly man Adam, from God by revelation. Then, it was kept by his posterity, the long living ancient fathers, to their human children; from which all mankind today descends, through Noah, a global flood survivor.

Academic Education Learning Resources: Educators
Provides quality education and learning resources for educators, faculty, staff, teachers, students, parents and research specialists.

Academic Globalization of "Genealogy Method"   --   CURRENT  USE  DEFINITION of "genealogy method": Method of investigative scholarship to establish valid generational relationships connecting any specialty, as used within or between all fields of knowledge.      JUSTIFICATION:  Genealogy Method procedures that discover and record connections of kinship, descent and marriage, can also be used to establish accurate understanding, for related knowledge system properties, using diagrams, symbols and scholarly analysis.

An academic usage of "Genealogy Method" in real time, within fields of research, vindicates the truthfulness of conclusions, as shown by historical comparison.  Thus, "genealogy method", or "genealogical perspective"; is, a scientific method of looking to the past, by using a "reverse" process of economic projection methodology.

> "The key technical problem in much of economic analysis is the determination of some unknown function." <

"These constructions rely on Taylor's theorem, the implicit function theorem, and bifurcation theory, and lead to the construction of Taylor or Padé series, or other approximations of a simple form."  KEY "These methods are called perturbation, or asymptotic methods.  The basic idea of asymptotic methods is to formulate a general problem, find a particular case which has a known solution, and then use that particular case and its solution (i.e., Genealogy Method: present events extrapolated back in time) as a starting point for computing approximate solutions to 'nearby' (historical) problems.  These methods are widely used in mathematical physics, particularly in quantum mechanics and general relativity theory,
with much success." . . . "We take the view that in the future such theoretical analyses will be done by computer software, and is an interesting new avenue of computational economics."
