From what I have read it seems like most genealogist are making educated guesses. What I find frustrating is the college of arms used to think Eben Putnam's work was correct and now they think Andrew Moriarty's work disproved that however Moriarty only seems to be guessing him self so to me that hardly disproves the lineage but Eben puts us in in Nicholas Puttenham of Penn lineage that would make the line through a different part of the family

Great opportunity here for descendants and relatives to do some research into various archives to discover documentation for themselves and then post it on the profiles
I see your connected on my mothers side. Are you also connected to the Putnam family of Salem?
After a certain point, actual records become scarce. In the absence of a will or land deed transfer, there may be none to prove lineage.

No offense intended but

1. My ancestors were slaves in Alabama and Mississippi. I can't go back further than 1870

2.Jewish children who survived the Holocaust sometimes couldn't remember who their grandparents were. And the Nazis made a concerted effort to destroy the synagogues and temples and the records that were in them.

3. Those of you who can go back and back and back are very fortunate but at some point, all things end.

No offense is taken. Im just out for the truth and Im hopeing someone with more knowledge on the family comes along. At this point it seems like the last ancestor I can be sure of is Richard   Puttenham    but it is more than likely he is a decendant of the early Puttenham family but i Can find no evidence of what branch.
