a. What is shown here is a variance to Ancestral Roots, Line 108[23] which states that one source shows Sibylle, wife of Henry of Burgundy, as daughter of Raymond Berenger I, d 1035, by (3) wife Guisle d'Ampurias. Integrating additional information posted by Todd Farmerie on SGM, it appears that this statement is in error; that it was the father of Raymond Berenger, namely Berenger Ramond, who died in 1035. Thus it is presumed that the third marriage ascribed to Raymond I Berenger was actually the marriage of his father. The chronology also appears to support this correction.
