Re: Vetting family tree submissions to genealogy sites for data soundness #general
"very often the data collected by commercial genealogical companies is useless"
The Record matching at Ancestry and MyHeritage are very valuable.

I could not have said it better. Like Prof. Gath, i've found it a huge waste of time to look in those commercial databases. To pay them money as a subscriber is adding insult to injury. Reminds me of the old database saying 'garbage in, garbage out', and then paying for the garbage. Like Gath some outdated versions of my own family data has somehow—to my great dismay— ended up in them.
