Chapter Summary

This chapter concerns 295 families: most of them, 247 families, consist of two generations; 42 of them are of one generation; and only six families have three generations; in five out of these six cases only the mother of the family head is listed, and in one single case a man is clearly attested with his son, grandson, and probably also his wife. There are differences between the various groups: 80 slave families (78.5%) are of two generations as against 22 families (21.5%) of only one generation; in the Harran Census only six families (8%) are of one generation, one family is of three generations(1%), and 71(91%) are of two generations. Pledged families: one family (6%) is of three generations, 14 (82%) are of two generations, and two are (12%) of one generation. Royal grants: 12 families (86%) are of two generations and two (14%) are of one generation.

Keywords: family generations; Harran census; pledged families; royal grants; slave families
