'Believe it or not....' - a Bunch of Begats

The following lineage presents 114 generations to Matilda, wife of King Henry I, obtained from records in Wales which were supposedly not destroyed when the Vandals overran Europe, destroying the records on the continent. The additional 19 generations from King Henry I to Griffith Bowen and to Margaret Fleming, and the 10 generations from Griffith BOWEN and Margaret FLEMING, 'completes' the 143 generation lineage from Adam to Iva Melvina FREEMAN, wife of Donald VanHoosier LAWSON.
