I am a big supporter of DNA testing to help in genealogy, and vice versa, but what good is when researchers, or even certified genealogists purposely publish the wrong lines?
In this case, the records of Wm Pitman Sr and Jr were combined, thus cutting out entire lines that went to NC.
Joseph Pitman, Quaker, did not leave a will so "the great ones" simply took the records of Joseph Pitman who died later and used those (Edgecombe Co NC). There was a court minutes entry for the death of Joseph Pitman, Quaker, as his documented son Thomas was orphan of Joseph Pitman, deceased, but why not just ignore that?
DNA testing is great, but I am seeing more and more "records" on the internet that are purely fabricated (not referring to any for Pitman).
DNA research is going in one direction (facts) and what used to be genealogy is going the other (down the drain).
