I hope you do not take this attack personally, and would welcome your
response.

Dear Anne and Jewishgenners, I guess a Jewish Family Tree would hold only Jews and if that is all David wants, I believe he is entitled to that. But
a Descendancy Chart includes all people beginning >from as far back as we able to reach to the present. I have been overanxious in including everyone
who connects in anyway, shape or form and have now over 8600 names
connected to an OSHINSKY family. Some are Cohen's some are Levites and some
are Israelites.
Other are Agnostics, Converts both ways and also run the gamut of Christianity.
They are families of families, but they connect. I have difficulty in leaving them out. It would be like a jig-saw puzzle without all the pieces.

So it is my contention, that David take your chart and remove the names that seem to disturb him and keep it for his purposes as a Jewish Family Tree. You however continue to create a Descendancy Chart with the roots and branches spread out to the world.

Oshins of Love,
Mel
