I have done no original research on this family line. Mark Putman of Michigan has done wonderful work finding all of the Putmans in many different locations, and has recently been able to extend the line back several generations in Europe.

If you have a connection to this line of Putmans and would like to share data with Mark and myself, please email me at

I knew that somehow you and I were cousins Randy. David Janse Putman is my 2nd Cousin 10 Times Removed - the Helena you mention is actually Helena Beekman according to Jonathan Pearson's Contributions for the Genealogies of the First Settlers of the Ancient County of Albany, from 1630 to 1800.

What relation is David Janse to you?
