I will be adding information from my different sources as well as info I have found on internet books etc

and the whole purpose of these branch pages is to get references for information found for these families as there is a lot of conflicting and no doubt wrong information to be found

This is an ongoing process . When I have all the info added I will edit the pages so they are not just a lot of diverse info

It is not possible to say what exact degree of relationship is implied by "consanguineo meo." In the present case it amounted to nothing more than a mutual admission that the families were descended from a common ancestor.
