I can't find any information regarding the ancestry line of Noah's sons' respective wives. From whom did they descend?

  • I would assume they descended from their parents. ;) Welcome to Mi Yodeya, Eldon. I hope you enjoy your stay. – DonielF Dec 18 '16 at 3:38
  • What were their names again? :) – David Kenner Dec 18 '16 at 9:29
  • The only reference is the Medrash that Noach's wife was Na'amah the daughter of Lemech and the sister of Tuval-Kayin. There is no reference that I know of which family the wives of his sons came from. We only know that they did not have children before the flood. chabad.org/library/bible_cdo/aid/8168/jewish/Chapter-4.htm#v=22 – sabbahillel Dec 19 '16 at 18:29
  • Also, how did they not all die from severe inbreeding? And how did eight million species fit on a boat? And how about the genetic evidence showing that our common ancestor didn't live 5000 years ago? – nbubis Dec 22 '16 at 6:00
