The Generation Table (the Cain line)
AM = Anno Mundi (After Creation)
Note: In jubilees is spoken about weeks (7 years) and Jubilees (7*7= 49 years), so 1 jubilee is 49 years and 1 week is 7 years, ( AM = After Creation)
In the Bible we can only find that Enoch was the son of Cain and some info about Lamech "the blind".

And in the third week in the second jubilee (64-70 AM) she gave birth to Cain, and in the fourth (71-77 AM) she gave birth to Abel, and in the fifth (78-84 AM) she gave birth to her daughter Âwân.
And Cain took Âwân his sister to be his wife and she bare him Enoch at the close of the fourth jubilee. (190-196 AM) And in the first year of the first week of the fifth jubilee, (197 AM) houses were built on the earth, and Cain built a city, and called its name after the name of his son Enoch.

)1 In acc. to the Sumerian King list Adam ruled for 162,000 years, when we divide it with 36 we come to a rule time of 4,500 years. When we compare this with the Biblical lifetime of Adam his Creation would have taken place in 7,504 BC (3074+4500) and NOT in 4004 BC (the Jewish date of Creation). The time Adam and Eve lived in the :Garden of Eden" than must have been 7504-4004 = 3,500 Biblical years and 126,000 Sumerian years. The attended reader has already seen that there is a difference between the Biblical, 1,000 years (Aeon?) and the Sumerian 36,000 years. (see chapter 2))2 The year of birth as mentioned here are derived from the story in the Bible although it differs with thousands of years with the Sumerian King list.)3 In The Second Book of Adam and Eve (chapter 21) we can read that Enoch was present at the burial of his father Jared. When Jared died Enoch was already 800 years old, so the lifetime of Enoch on Earth as mentioned in the Bible (365) is wrong. Enoch's ascension took place 114 years after Jared's dead, so Enoch's total lifetime was 914 years. (for more details see chapter 4)
Adam died when Lamech was 56 years old, Cain died in the same year as Adam, Seth died when Lamech was 168 years old, Enos died when, Noah was 84 years old, Cainan died when Noah was 179 years old, Mahalaleel died when Noah was 234 years old, Jared died when Noah was 366 year old, Lamech died when Noah was 595 year old, Methuselah died when Noah was 600 year old. Methuselah died in the year of the Flood.

When we calculate the year of Nimrod's dead we know that Esau was 15 years old when he murdered Nimrod, Esau was born in 1838 and Nimrod was 215 years when he died. A simple calculation brings us tot the year of his dead as 1838-15=1823 BC. Nimrod was thus born in 1823+215 = 2038 BC. He was king from 2008 to 1823 BC. (2038-30).

And the son grew, and his father taught him writing, and he went to seek for himself a place where he might seize for himself a city. And he found a writing which former (generations) had carved on the rock, and he read what was thereon, and he transcribed it and sinned owing to it; for it contained the teaching of the Watchers in accordance with which they used to observe the omens of the sun and moon and stars in all the signs of heaven. And he wrote it down and said nothing regarding it; for he was afraid to speak to Noah about it lest he should be angry with him on account of it. And in the thirtieth jubilee, in the second week, in the first year thereof (1429 AM), he took to himself a wife, and her name was Melka, the daughter of Madai, the son of Japheth, and in the fourth year (1432 AM) he begat a son, and called his name Shelah; for he said: 'Truly I have been sent.' (And in the fourth year he was born), and Shelah grew up and took to himself a wife, and her name was Mu'ak, the daughter of Kesed, his father's brother, in the one and thirtieth jubilee, in the fifth week, in the first year (1499 AM) thereof.

)1 In the book of Jasher Esau is murdered by a son of Dan but in the book of Jubilees Eseu is murdered by his brother Jacob. The Bible do not mention the dead of Esau.
The Revised Timeline match exactly with the story, in years and lifetime, mentioned in the book of Jasher when we insert Cainam, who is only mentioned in Jubilees 8. In the conventional "Biblical timeline" of Archbishop James Ussher there is a decreased difference of 60 years. (in fact 50 years because he used two times 1 year when calculating the year in which Terah and Serug died). With other words "the fifteenth years = not +15 but +14 years and "the thirty-fifth year" = not 35 but 34 years.
The Children of Jacob "Twelve Patriarchs"
The dates of birth and dead can be calculated because we know that Jacob lived for 17 years in Egypt before he died The Biblical timeline is than (1749+17= 1766) and the revised timeline (1691+17=1708), a difference of 58 years (60-1-1)
