Re: Vetting family tree submissions to genealogy sites for data soundness #general


WWW
 

Not the site but the Submitter. The keyword is Submitted. The submitted information is only as good as the quality check done by the original submitter, not the site itself.
Matches and Hints are suggestions. Double check. Others might automatically add a "hint" or "match" to their own tree, not realizing the information is not correct or a completely different person with a similar name.
Over the years the issue is compounded by more trees copying the same misinformation.  
 So always track back to the source to confirm.
