In looking at the Harrington project results page (and I'm just starting to understand all of this, so tell me if I'm wrong) it seems quite clear that Benjamin (b. abt. 1618--lineage VI) and Robert (b. abt. 1616--lineage VII) Harrington, both of whom lived in MA, definitely are not related, correct?  While this has always been suspected, there has also been a camp that believed they were brothers, perpetuated by the Harrington Family Genealogical Gazetteer.   If I am right, what a great testimony to the value of DNA in genealogical research.   In the absence of proof, which was never found, people were left to decide for themselves whether these two were related.
