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

Using geni allows me to keep a single evergreen tree up-to-date and along with MyHeritage and Ancestry and DNA testing, I have been able to find relatives I never would have otherwise. I would never have thought I could connect to a 6th great-grandfather. Collaboration is the only way. It is easy to keep my geni tree up-to-date and correct it as mistakes are found. It is not easy to keep my MyHeritage and Ancestry trees up to date. I use them mostly for matching to improve my geni tree, which is getting more correct as time goes by. The public nature allows people to alert me to issues I was not aware of - the kinds of issues that would not have been found in my siloed trees on MyHeritage and Ancestry.

I don't have a public tree at any of the mentioned sites, though I have considered it.  The comments here have convinced me to keep my tree private other than on JewishGen.  Luckily for me, my cousin's husband works on our shared tree and even parts of the tree not shared from time to time and shares info with me.
