Maybe, Diana, but there's "proved" and there's PROVED. ;-) To join the Mayflower Society one has to practically jump through fiery hoops of primary documentary proof. Even after I knew the line was there and for real it took me over a year to assemble to primary documentation required for the Society membership. In 2005, my (new) membership ID number was near the 75,000 mark. It could be a bit higher now, but the proved lines are not nearly in the millions.
