The Jaredite Genealogy
The book of Ether contains the account of the ancient American civilization of the Jaredites and even provides a long chain of genealogy from Jared, who with his brother founded this great nation, all the way to Ether, the last prophet of the Jaredites.
What’s the point?
The story of the Jaredites is interconnected with the stories of its families. Genealogy provides insights into the lives of these families, their members, and their effect on the society. Also, this line forms the backbone of Jaredite history, because no sort of timeline is provided for the Jaredite nation other than this genealogy provided by Moroni.
