The names of men who fathered the
families of mankind are, for the most part, readily found in historical
records. For instance, the Ionians (Greeks, Daniel 10:20) trace
their ancestry to Javan (transliterated from Hebrew , yavan),
the son of Japheth. Mizraim, son of Ham, to this very day,
is the Hebrew name for Egypt. And the sons of Shem, the third son
of Noah, are the modern Semites. Thus, all mankind today could, if
they knew their lineage, trace it back to Noah's sons.
