Was Anyone Really Burned at the Stake During the Salem Witch Trials?

Hey Doc, I read this research article last year about this topic that might interest you. It's about looking at the names, genealogies, and timelines surrounding the families and people involved in the Salem Witch Trials and how a lot doesn't make sense and add up. Look at the pastors, the judges, look at tituba even, and maybe there was a motive way back then to lie and exaggerate the story. A lot of the history and written accounts were supposably written a hundred years and more later. This physicist guy researches genealogies, history, and historical documents and just lays out the "facts," with what's available to the public. It's worth a quick read.
