How We Created the Book of Mormon Genealogy Chart

If you are looking for the actual chart, please visit our Book of Mormon Genealogy Chart page.

I noticed how hard it was to keep everybody separate in my mind while reading the Book of Mormon and decided a chart would help me and others. I began slowly reading through the Book of Mormon, attempting to identify every individual mentioned by name or referred to as an individual person (like Teacum’s servant). Once I identified a person, I sketched their name onto a series of large sheets of paper by the book in which their name first appeared. At the same time, I tried to link the name to their parents and descendants. I reread the Book of Mormon and made corrections over and over again. When things began to solidify (fewer corrections per each additional reading of the Book of Mormon), I transferred my hand drawn charts to Microsoft Publisher. Then I continued to reread the Book of Mormon making corrections. As time passed, I changed computers and charting programs and continued to edit. When it started looking better, about four years after I began, I spent another year working on it about 20 minutes every morning I could. Then we really turned the heat up for several months.
