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

JoAnne,

I do not expect these companies to examine trees and look for improbable situations. That is my job, not theirs. I am the researcher and they are the records providers. As far as online trees go, I would not take anything from an online tree before proving or disproving the information. Can you even imagine the number of employees it would take and how many hours to look for what might be improbable  information? The person who owns the tree is obviously not a serious researcher or is poorly educated in doing this type of research. This gives them 3 additional ancestors instead of one!
