The divergent point was in 2233 but the fact that an alternate timeline was created makes them both separate from each other in all aspects. Therefore while both timelines' pasts would be identical up to 2233, they're still completely separate and they don't overlap
Incorrect on that last bit. Prior to 2233, there ARE no "both timelines". There is only ONE timeline before that. 2233 is the divergence - the point where one timeline becomes two. That's how it works.
