Re: Geni Family Trees - Privacy and Baptism Concerns #general

Just like Wikipedia provide the ability for correcting the incorrect, my tree is infinitely more correct as people have found and suggested corrections, which I have gladly made. This would be impossible with all of the siloed incorrect private trees. Seems every private siloed tree has the same and different errors that do not get corrected. I prefer progressive correctness to leave those that follow me after I am gone

You claim “Collaborative sites, like geni, provide the best possibility of progressive correctness for this record.”  

What is your evidence for this bold assertion?  The anecdotal evidence reported by many users of these sites suggests that the posted trees become progressively more incorrect as careless users cut and paste each others errors into ever more trees.  This is the antithesis of “progressive correctness.”
