Folkscanomy: Genealogy and Genealogic Study

Folksonomy: A system of classification derived from the practice and method of collaboratively creating and managing tags to annotate and categorize content; this practice is also known as collaborative tagging, social classification, social indexing, and social tagging. Coined by Thomas Vander Wal, it is a portmanteau of folk and taxonomy.

Folkscanomy: A collection of books and text derived from the efforts of volunteers to make information as widely available as possible. Because the metadata related to these scanned books are often done outside the library or cataloging industries, finding material can be more difficult. The Folkscanomy collection attempts to add a layer of classification for easier navigation.

This collection is Folkscanomy Genealogy.

This short 16 page booklet summarizes the genealogy and history of King Tutankhamun.  This booklet contains reproductions of many Cartouches and a summary of each of his ancestors.  A classic pedigree chart is included. From the book: Most people have trouble with the pronunciation of the name, so the boy king is usually referred to as "King Tut" for short.  The name "Tutankhamun" is rather simple and is easy to remember when broken down into its three component parts. ...
