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

More to the point, to verify the matches you often have to be a paying member of that particular site.  I have a free tree (very limited compared to my “real” one on Ancestry), and keep getting hints to confirm that are either complete garbage, or are repetitive of information that I already have.  I am sure that I am not alone in this experience or my skepticism about the vale of such sites for substantive research.  They are good for finding relatives who are also searching for common family, but in my experience that’s about it.
