Genealogy of Shoghi Effendi

by Grover Gonzales

Note: I received this chart in two parts, which were apparently two scans of the same long original. The scans split around the middle where there's an entry for "Yazdigird III". Note there is a bit of overlap between the two images at this point. Click on the images below to see the full-size versions, as I received them. They are minimal-quality, having been saved as bitmapped (pixellated) gifs. I do not have higher-quality versions.

This chart was discussed -- if informally and contentiously -- in four places on a Wikipedia Talk page, where it was stated "Dr. Gonzales was commissioned by Shoghi Effendi to do this research and approved it for publication. Gonzales claims he received the bulk of his work on Bahá'u'lláh's family from Mirza Abu-Fazl who received it directly from Bahá'u'lláh." I don't know if that is accurate, or how to verify it.
