Genesis 36

These are the generations of Esau (Edom). He took wives from the women of Canaan:
Adah daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah daughter of Anah and
Granddaughter of Zibeon the Hittite, and Basemath the daughter of Ishmael
Sister of Nebaioth. Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau, Basemath bore Reuel,
And Oholibamah bore Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. Those were the sons of Esau,
Who were born to him in the land of Canaan. Esau decided to journey abroad.
He took his wives, his sons and his daughters, all members of his household, cattle and beasts,
All his animals, and everything he had gained while in Canaan, from greatest to least.
He went off into another land, away from Jacob his brother, on his account,
For together, they had too much livestock to feed, and the land couldn’t support that amount.
So Esau settled in the hill-country of Seir (Esau is Edom, please be aware).
This is the line of Esau, father of the Edomites, in the hill-country of Seir:
Now these are the names of the sons of Esau: Eliphaz son of Esau’s wife Adah,
And Reuel son of Basemath, the wife of Esau. And then the sons of Eliphaz:
There were Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and Kenaz. Now Timna was a concubine
To Eliphaz son of Esau, and she bore Amalek to Eliphaz, in his line.
Those were the sons of Esau’s wife Adah. And these are the sons of Reuel: Nahath,
And Zerah, and Shammah and Mizzah. And those were the sons of Esau’s wife Basemath.
These are the sons of Oholibamah, Anah’s daughter, granddaughter of Zibeon
(Whose name can mean “hyena”), and Esau’s wife. Oholibamah bore Esau three sons:
Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. These are the clans of Esau’s sons: The sons of Eliphaz,
His firstborn: The clans Teman, Omar, Zepho, Korah, Gatam, Amalek, and Kenaz.
Those are the clans of Eliphaz in the land of Edom. Those are the sons of Adah.
These are the sons of Esau’s son Reuel: the clans Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah;
Those are the clans of Reuel in the land of Edom, sons of Basemath, Esau’s wife.
And these are the sons of Esau’s wife Oholibamah, the ones to whom she gave life:
Clans Jeush, Jalam, and Korah; these are the clans of Esau’s wife Oholibamah,
Daughter of Anah, Esau’s wife. Those are the sons and clans of Edom, who was Esau.

These are the sons of Seir the Horite, who were settled in the land: Shobal and Lotan,
Zibeon, and Anah, and Dishon, and Ezer, and Dishan. Those were the Horite clans,
The children of Seir in the land of Edom. The sons of Lotan were Hemam and Hori,
And Lotan’s sister was Timna (the concubine who was mentioned before in the story).
These are the sons of Shobal: Alvan, and Manahath, and Ebal, Onam and Shepho.
These are the sons of Zibeon: Aiah and Anah–the Anah who found long ago
The hot springs in the wilderness, while pasturing the asses of Zibeon his father.
And these are the children of Anah: his son Dishon, and Oholibamah his daughter.
And these are the children of Dishon: There were Hemdan, Eshban, and Ithran and Cheran.
These are the sons of Ezer: Bilhan, Zaavan, and Akan. These are the sons of Dishan:
Uz and Aran. These are the clans of the Horites: the clans Zibeon, Shobal, Lotan,
Anah, Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. Those are the Horite families, by clan, in Seir’s land.

These are the kings who reigned in Edom, before any king o’er the Israelites reigned.
Bela son of Beor reigned in Edom as king, and “Dinhabah” was his city’s name.
When Bela died, Jobab son of Zerah, from Bozrah, became king and reigned in his stead.
When Jobab died, Husham from the land of the Temanites then became king in his stead.
When Husham died, Hadad son of Bedad succeeded him as king, and reigned in his stead,
(The Hadad who defeated Midian in Moab) “Avith” was the city he led.
When Hadad died, Samlah of Masrekah succeeded him as king, and reigned in his stead.
When Samlah died, Saul of Rehoboth-on-the-River became king and reigned in his stead.
When Saul died, Baal-hanan son of Achbor succeeded him and became king in his stead.
When Baal-hanan son of Achbor died, Hadar became the next king, and reigned in his stead.
“Pau” was his city’s name, and his wife’s name was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred,
Daughter of Me-zahab. These are the names of the clans of Esau, by name, place, and clan:
The clans Timna, Alvah, Jetheth, Oholibamah, Elah, Pinon, Kenaz, Teman,
Mibzar, Magdeil, and Iram. Those are the clans of Edom, listed by their habitations
In the land of their holdings. And that is Esau, the father of the Edomite nation.

Do you know where i can find a tribe crest or seal for the Mizzah tribe (clan) ?
We have traced our lineage to the Moors who travel into Spain and the Spanish Jews who travel to the Neatherlands after.

Cheers,

Howdy Roberto,

Sadly, I don’t have any knowledge of where to go about finding tribe crests or seals, but I bid you the best of luck in your search. It’s already pretty neat that you’ve managed to trace your lineage back that far.

Best,
Seth
