From this tree structure, one can see the relationships among Chinese surnames. For example, last names Ding, Gao,
Hong, Lu, Qiu, Xie Xu and Wei all have a common ancestor (Emperor Yan Di). This page also shows the evolution of
surnames, e.g., the last name Luo came from Xiong, which in turn came from Mie, and are all descendents of Zhuan Xu.

This agrees with the Bible teaching of God (often referred to as the rock, Psalm 18:1-3) creating the heavens and
the earth from what was without form and void (Genesis 1:1-2). The common ancestors of the Chinese race are often
regarded as Fu Xi and Nu Huo. According to the legend, they were brother and sister (children of God), but also
husband and wife. It puzzled historians why Fu Xi and Nu Huo were often depicted as having human upper body, but
with the lower body of a serpent.

Yan Di and Huang Di were brothers and descendents of Fu Xi and Nu Huo. Shao Hao was the son of Huang Di; Zhuan Xu was the son of Shao Hao; Di Ku was the son of Zhuan Xu; Zhi Di and Yao Di were brothers and sons of Di Ku. Shun Di was not related to Yao Di. Yao gave Shun his throne because his own son Zhu Dan was not a good ruler.
Xia Yu was also not related to Shun. Xia Yu was crowned the king because of his contributions in fighting the flood of the Yellow River.
