Hey, everyone.

Just FYI, I cleaned up the page for Peter Tufts, a man who was involved in the Salem Witch trials. I hope you can add him to the project and maybe PPP his page. I just discovered the line to him using Geni's History Link feature in Smart copy. I looked up his profile here and saw that it needed sprucing up,.

Added him to Notables and Witch trials. His wikipedia article is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Tufts

I doublechecked and it is indeed the same guy on Geni, wikipedia and here. The page here was barren. Fixed that problem!

Thanks! I might put the bio in my own words later. That was a quick C/P job as I was out the door.

Wow. Never said the dude was on the up and up, Chris. Hahaha.

I think we all have people with umm...shady pasts back there in the tree. What's funny is that one of his descendants went on to found Tufts University and my mom ended up going there.

I have a Tufts line in my family tree that I’m trying to straighten out so thank you for this interesting info. I have a Peter , but he was born (and died) in England. However, one of his children came over here to Massachusetts in the 1600’s and they are one of my first direct lines here.
