Many people have wished they could trace their ancestry back to Adam and Eve. Here is a place those lines can be identified, with commentary. But they are not reliable!

When asked if it is possible for living people to extend ancestral lines back to Adam and Eve, Robert C. Gunderson, Senior Royalty Research Specialist, of the [LDS] Church Genealogical Department, stated:

“The simplest answer is No. Let me explain. In thirty-five years of genealogical research, I have yet to see a pedigree back to Adam that can be documented. By assignment, I have reviewed hundreds of pedigrees over the years. I have not found one where each connection on the pedigree can be justified by evidence from contemporary documents. In my opinion it is not even possible to verify historically a connected European pedigree earlier than the time of the Merovingian Kings (c. a.d. 450–a.d. 752).

“Every pedigree I have seen which attempts to bridge the gap between that time and the biblical pedigree appears to be based on questionable tradition, or at worst, plain fabrication. Generally these pedigrees offer no evidence as to the origin of the information, or they cite a vague source.” [1]

Biblical Genealogy

The Hebrew Scriptures are full of genealogies.

The New Testament Books of Matthew and Luke both give genealogies tracing Jesus of Nazareth back to Adam and Eve. Luke's presentation covers 76 generations. These genealogies are presented in complete detail at Wikipedia: Genealogy_of_Jesus including a comparison of the different genealogies of Jesus given in Matthew and Luke.

Welsh Pedigrees Tracing Back to Adam

Lewys Dwnn presents a pedigree of Pughe, of Mathavarn, in Cyveilog, to Adam, which illustrates the fondness of the Welsh for pedigrees as well as the difficulty of determining at what point the pedigree moves from history to legend. [3]
