the commercial sites hold out the promise of magically finding all your relatives, neatly laid out for you by their genealogical pixies, and all you have to do is click on the link (and please have your credit card ready).  many beginners seem to fall for this, and happily glom onto what they think is “their file”.

this reminds me of an old jewishgen infofile, which is good reading, especially for newbies:
