Re: Good New Tool: Thru Lines on Ancestry #dna #general #announcements #education

I set up Thru Lines on Ancestry awhile back, but I must say I've been disappointed, as it has errors that apparently can't be corrected.

For example:  Thru Lines identifies my grandmother's paternal aunt as potentially my grandmother's maternal grandmother.  The error results in Thru Lines misidentifying subsequent ancestors.
The FAQs for Thru Lines state: "If a potential ancestor does not support what you know about your family's history, you may contact the family tree owner associated with that person to correct any errors or make changes." 


But the family tree owner doesn't even have my grandmother listed in her tree; there's nothing there to correct.  Moreover, the error is not based on a DNA match (although I DO match a descendant of my grandmother's paternal aunt... which isn't even reflected here!).  I wish there was a way I could click "Ignore" as I do with some of the hints Ancestry provides for people in my family tree.
