Re: are there benefits of the My Heritage site over Ancestry #general

I use wikitree for my main tree. One of the problems I have with other sites, as previously mentioned, is that references are not required, so someone can repeat their family lore as if it were known to be true. For example, many trees will list one of my ancestors as an illegitimate daughter of King Christian IV. While her mother was indeed one of the king's many mistresses, I've seen no actual evidence that he was the father of her child. Yet it is often presented as fact. May be true, may not be!
