Can we Disconnect unsourced/unproven parents of Nathaniel Harmon (PGM)?

+10 votes

Nathaniel Harmon immigrant ancestor seems to have acquired parents Francis Harmon and his Unknown (alias Sarah Martin) wife. I've not located anything that names Nathaniel's parents. Some research is on his profile. Does anyone know of anything to support and/or dispute this relationship.

Can we disconnect these parents?

I'd disconnect the parents, but leave the discussion of "Disputed Parentage".

Thanks Scott. The "Disputed" sections have become standard parts of many puritan great migration profiles.

70% of the pre-1500 ancestors on this website are fictional connections and unfortunately the website is defeating its own mission statement by not trimming connections and listing possible lineages for further investogations in the child's bio. Neds a huge overhaul

I tend to agree with you Michelle, unfortunately, there are not enough hands doing good research, to check all these connections, some of them added ten years ago by persons who were following internet trees.
