Just because the NEHGS has printed something does not prove it right...just as the article that states the lineage is a forgery is not gospel!
The case for a faulty genealogical line is put forward quite clearly in the article I read. Check for it via the search button on this forum. I do not quote the article, but I did give a source citation (I think). If not, e-mail me and I will give you the source information.
If the line is through Matthew Beckwith of CT, you are only fooling yourself if you think his parentage has been documented. Check previous strands on this forum and you will "hear" from excellent genealogical researchers (Virgil Huntley, for example) who will agree that NO ONE has come forward with ANY documentation regarding the parentage of Matthew of CT.
I don't mean to burst your genealogical bubble, simply try to obtain the PRIMARY documentation that establishes Matthew's link to anyone in England. Or fot that matter, ask for PRIMARY documentation regarding his wife's maiden name [Mary/Elizabeth LYND(E)]. I have asked everyone who has stated her name, but all refuse to send me copies of the documentation- simply because there is none??
Too many people have been led astray by Paul Beckwith's book!
