( NOTE ** > The family of this last couple were not named in the records - except one He later became known as " LORD SITSYLIT of DYFNWAL ARNALIT " THIS WAS THE START OF THE " ARNOLD " NAME EVENTUALLY IN WALES FROM THIS LINE OF ANCESTRY . " LORD SITSYLIT " also became one of the real foundation blocks in " Weich Ancestry "
Many other families are linked to this person. In fact over ( 80 % ) of other Welch ancestry are linked one way or another. He is the Genealogist's Dream and many many of my fellow genealogists have started at this point in a 365 Degree circle . He was one of the great finds in modern day records . This is also the end of part two ( 2 )- ( Shortened version ) It was nice for the wife to know all the history , the affairs , the fighting , and much more . However I think when others are looking at such an extradinary long ancestral chart as this . They just want to see flow chart . OK - Till we meet again - Regards -edmondsallan
