Abstract:Two copies of genealogies for the ruling matrilineages of the old Wolof state of Waalo are presented here with a brief analysis. The genealogies reach back from at least the middle of the nineteenth century throug the time of Ndiadiane Ndiaye and earlier. The texts of the genealogies come from two unplished works entiled 'Apercu sur le Oualo', which are attributed to Yoro Dyao (1847-1919) and Amadou Wade (ca. 1886-1961). The text of the genealogies attributed to Amadou Wade is presented here; the differences in the text attributed to Yoro Dyao inserted at the relevant places. Bibliogr., notes, fig.
