I just happened to be dealing with a somewhat distant relative (a profile I "inherited") of this Rhys ap Gruffydd, and at first glance the information in the "About" is rather different from the actual partners and children which currently are connected.

Maybe someone more familiar (than I currently am) with this clan could re-sort these out?
(e.g. Jason Scott Wills)

Agreed Jason, We really need to find users familiar with the Welsh trees to organsise some of the messes. It would have been nice to arrange with Geni to have a St David's day focus (1st March) but for this year that would be unrealistic. Maybe next year.

@Dan Cornett, it would be great if you were able to help us out here. There is one project already:

I have several lines of my family that go into the Welsh tree. I found that starting a project on a specific family and gathering sources such as Visitations was helpful to cleaning up and documenting that line. I agree, they are a mess. It's wonderful that many of us are enamored of Welsh history, which is why we get lots of volunteers working on these early Medieval Welsh families, but the historical novels about Wales are not always 100% factual in their genealogies.

Aw, you mean I can't beleive everything Sharon Penman writes?

I got looking at this area because of a data conflict which recently showed up with: Unknown Rhys , which is rather off to the side of things:

"Unknown Rhys (NN) is Rhys ap Gruffydd's great grandson's wife."

Clearing that up that simple data conflict led me to looking at the "bush" to which it was connected... It didn't "look good", so I started looking for some "About" info, which led to this seemingly key profile which was obviously inconsistent with the connections I saw. Hence starting this conversation.
