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!!

-- While ones tree may be a work in progress, the best way not  to mislead other people is always to put in one's sources. So anyone examining it can make their own decision as to whether an entry is correct.
