“Preserve Our Genealogy”

Brant Gardner

Literature: Omni begins as Jarom did, with a formal declaration that he will preserve his genealogy but gives no genealogical details except to confirm that Jarom is his father. Almost certainly, he copied this opening phrase from his father’s record. It should therefore be considered formulaic rather than descriptive.
