Re: FTJP-Family Tree of the Jewish People #courland #general

I keep my master family trees on my own computer, where I have complete control. I have versions of my trees on JewishGen FTJP, My Heritage and Geni, but don't always have time to update them all. I have them there in case distant cousins get in touch, which they do from time to time. I find Geni the biggest problem. As soon as I turn my back, someone comes along and adds duplicate cousins, or grafts on whole new branches, or swaps parents and generally messes up my data. They very rarely consult before doing this. Because of this, I treat data on Geni with a lot of suspicion!
