If Genesis 5:1a is the concluding statement of Adam's record, then Genesis 5:1b is the opening statement of Noah's record, which concludes with Noah's signature at Genesis 6:9. As is true with the opening statements following the other toledoth endings in Genesis, as well as similar phenomena in Babylonian tablets, each statement ties in to the previous division by keying in to relevant statements. The opening statement in Genesis 5:1,2 obviously refers back to Genesis 1:26-28. Note that God "created" man in His spiritual image, and "made" man in His physical "likeness" (anticipating His future incarnation in human flesh).
