Re: Wrong people on family trees on genealogy sites #general

There’s clearly nothing that can effectively be done about this problem, and it’s not likely to get better.  The one response I know is to train users to be very cautious about accepting any information as true that does not include appropriate source documentation.  Let me add that references to other trees does not in and of itself constitute documentation given the amount of misinformation propagated from one to multiple trees; I’m sure we all have stories about that phenomenon.
