chronological lineage of taoism

good day;

lets try to make a chronological lineage of taoism, if possible.

Did taoism originated with the yellow emperor or Lao Tsu? or maybe with the Ba tribesmen, shamanism magic or dances like Yu dances;

Li Hu from the lineage of Ba led his followers to join
the Celestial Masters:

Li Hong were executed in 324 for practicing sorcery, so i guess old schools were hidden in old times since begining? maybe we never found out who they were, but maybe we can trace a map or chart of the history of lineages of daoism or taoism.

good day;

It would be interesting but I don't think it would be possible to trace the lineage...
Taoism obviously predates Lao Tzu as He does refer to "The Tao Masters of antiquity" in Dao Te Ching.....

the early form of nature knowledge are the Wu shamans from wikipedia "(Wu is used in compounds like wugu 巫蠱 "sorcery; cast harmful spells", wushen 巫神 or shenwu 神巫 (with shen "spirit; god") "wizard; sorcerer", and wuxian 巫仙 (with xian "immortal; alchemist") "immortal shaman".)"

belive to came from the north, meaning siberia, mongolia, Tibet and countries like that; they could be also been living in china that time;

what time it is is unknown to me now but i guess before the emperors of China i guess is in the period of the Three Sovereigns (Three August Ones) 2600 BC:

from wikipedia:

"According to the Classic of Mountains and Seas, Fuxi and Nüwa were the original humans who lived on the mythological Kunlun Mountain (today's Huashan). One day they set up two separated piles of fire, and the fire eventually became one. Under the fire, they decided to become husband and wife. Fuxi and Nüwa used clay to create offspring, and with the divine power they made the clay figures come alive.[8] These clay figures were the earliest human beings. Fuxi and Nüwa were usually recognized by Chinese as two of the Three Sovereigns in the early patriarchal society in China (c. 2600 BC)"

Fuxi founded the trigrams of the Yijing (Fuxi used to be like a snake) Nügua, tail is that of a snake,(yin and yang)

Shennong is the healer

Zhurong or Suiren dragon "firegod"

2597 – 2514 Shaohao and Five Emperors:
2637 – 2598 Yellow Emperor
2513 – 2436 Zhuanxu
2435 – 2366 Ku
2365 – 2256 Yao
2355 – 2206 Shun

Lao Tzu around 6 or 4 hundred years before year 0 (of modern calender)

Around the year 100 a names came up:

Zhang Daoling the taoist lineage of the Way of the Celestial Masters or the Heavenly Masters Sect

Zhang Jue the taoist lineage of Way of Great Peace (Taiping dao)
