NOTE; Weis says in Line 48: "The lineage shwon in the earliereditions is unproven, however the followin is well supported. SeeNEHGR Vol. 117, pp. 268-271." Line 48 starts with # 10, whereas CountWarnius was listed as 48-9, therefore one would assume that hisdescendants have been proven, but his ancestors have not. (T. Barton1-24-98)
