Bear in mind, I have a background in Christianity, so my superficial knowledge of Judaism is at best base on the old testament. In the old testament David is told his line will result in the Messiah.

I know in Judaism it's believed that the messiah hasn't arrived yet; and was curious of there were any contemporary or historical attempts to track the line of David in efforts to watch for the messiah. Obviously, if such knowledge were lost that would hardly stop the messiah from being born, but I was curious if it exist.
