  1. Proud to be of and from the family of Cainan,Amen…*ll):->

  2. First off I think the chart is a great idea, especially for children and new Christians. However, I have noticed some errors in both the timeline online and the narratives.
    Especially with Cainan. If Enos was born in 3769 BC and had Cainan when he was 90. Then Cainan should have been born in 3679 not 3769 as shown on both the online timeline and the narrative. The online time line and the narrative show that father and son were born the same year 3769 BC. Also there are several names that the online timeline and the narrative do not agree. Thought you might want to correct this.

    1. Nice eye Herb and we have the update in the latest version. Thank you!

  3. This chart has been truly amazing! The information is so in-depth and complete! One question is in regard to birth of Cainan: biblical figure, son of Enos according to Timeline Online printout is a typo. If Enos was born 3769 and was 90 years old when son Cainan was born then Cainan should show being born 3679BC. Just a typing error. Mahalaleel birth date appears correct for corrected date of birth for Cainan. Thank you so much for this outstanding tool! God Bless!

    1. Correct in the latest version, thank you!
