This manuscript is a genealogy describing the descendants of Mame Maharam Mbacke, the ancestor of Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba, who lived in the 18th century. The author describes the methods he used to collect the data needed for the work, noting that most of the information he used was based on the work of Serigne Mouhammadou Lamine Deme, one of the most renowned Murid leaders and a close follower of Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba. The document provides a genealogy of Mame Maharam Mbacke, his children (including Ahmadou Farimata, Mame Ahmadou Soxna Bousso, Mame Ibrahima Awa Niang, Mame Said Soxna Bousso, Mame Balla Aicha, Mame Yalla Aissa, among others). The document is useful for historians interested in the genealogy and ethnic mixing (between Wolof and Pulaar) in the Mbacke family from the 18th to the 20th century. Digitized on 18 August 2011. All pages are readable, but some pages are missing.
