Re: Vetting family tree submissions to genealogy sites for data soundness #general
Even if the names on someone else’s tree match up perfectly with mine, I always take the extra time to review their sources to make sure the data is also correct. In fact, today I came across this exact scenario; by double checking the sources, I found the correct marriage record with bride’s parents’ names. The owner of the tree, husband of a newly-found fourth cousin three times removed, assumed that the couple married in one place since they both came from there; never make assumptions!!
