    1. [CANNEY] The Four Basic Claims of the Family Origin of Henry "Kinne" of Salem, MA

    3. I've added a new page to Henry's web site. The Four Basic Claims of the Family Origin of Henry "Kinne" ca. 1624 - ca. 1710 of Salem, Massachusetts http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~gkbopp/HENRY/FamilyOrigin.htm tiny url to the same page: http://tinyurl.com/2vb4hp As most of you know - the basic claims are: (1) Henry was born about 1624 - there is evidence to support this. (2) Henry had a knighted ancestor - there is no evidence. (3) Henry had a connection to Norfolk, England - there is no evidence. (4) Henry immigrated to Massachusetts via Holland - there is no evidence. The web page discusses the possible origins of the undocumented claims - they appear to be the result of inexperienced researchers (who may have been duped by fraudulent researchers) who incorporated a few historical facts into tales of Henry's origin. As always - any DOCUMENTED information is welcome. Georgia Kinney Bopp
