Shalom everyone! The following is a diagram of the generations of Noah (Noach), from his son Japheth to his grandson Kittim, progenitor of the Romim (Romans), based upon the accounts of the Book of Genesis (Bereshith) in the Tanakh, the Book of Jasher, and the Book of Jubilees. The descendants of Japheth also known as “Japhetites,” or “Indo-Europeans” in the English language.
Japheth was the eldest son of Noah though he is mentioned third and last in the Book of Genesis. The Japhethites migrated from Mesopotamia to Europe, West Asia (Turkey, the Caucasus and northern Iran), Central Asia and North Asia:
