The Life of Saint Brychan: King of Brycheiniog and Family
The life of Saint Brychan shows all his family and his wives. Lineage of his and his wives are examined, and a listing of all his children (over 40). A study of all his ancestors who are Saints, as well as all his descendents for about 5 generations who are Saints. He and his wives relationships to Saint Joseph, James first Bishop of Jerusalem, and Saint Joseph of Arimathea is studied. His descendents who are Saints lineage and their descendents are studied. Other families of Saints are shown, and there are about 40 pages of charts and text about the biblical times. In the book there are 65 ancestral charts, and many lineages shown. Lines that continued from Saint Brychan are included to about 1000 ad. and some to 1400 ad. in an attempt for the reader to find links to his or her ancestry. A gedcom is offered (computer file used to tie in the lineages used in the research)at the end of the book with over 375 Saints and 50 Popes lineages or descents contained in the file.

This book needed a proofreader.
Page 16 "He married and had numerous issues." You mean issue, even when there's more than one child that word stays in the singular. This book certainly has numerous issues.
Page 19 "King Brychan had two other wife's" It should be "wives."
Page 67 The book says that Almedha verch Brychan was a virgin, but lists husband and children as unknown. This was likely to match the format of the other entries, but is ridiculous and unnecessary. If she was a virgin then her husband and children weren't unknown, they were nonexistent! Better to not mention a husband and children in the family section. If it *must* stick to the format, then husband and children should've been listed as N/A (Not Applicable).
Page 72 for the Descendancy of Gwawr, it lists both 16 and 17 as Cynfyn ap Gwerystan, clearly a duplicate entry that should've been caught and deleted before going into print.
I could go on but that would take too long.
Also the author doesn't appear to have read many genealogical books himself, because the format of this book is rather different from most books about family lines. It's unusual.
Dates and names on the one list I previewed are all wrong in a group of about three generations.
