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


I would like to throw into the mix, the thought/intention that some copying of data from others may be purely that people are hopeful that a new piece of information may lead to somewhere meaningful. Obviously, there should be a caveat on the accuracy and one would hope that if incorrect data becomes apparent that each would communicate such and rectify.

It's my sincere 'hope' that Randy's incorrect statement above is solely because he was misinformed. However, since he so often unflinchingly disses anybody who's critical in any manner about Geni, well I don't know... Anyway, for information, allow me to set the record straight:

Even before Geni's official launch, while Geni still was in beta test mode, I uploaded an initial gedcom file which by then documented circa 3'000 ancestors and relatives... plus further updated that on several occasions during the following year and months. Oh yes, since then my family database gradually grew to include 20'000+ persons... which many of you know first hand as I've always been eager to share with others all the information it contains.

Perhaps 'food-for-thought' on Geni's behalf, rather than reflexively responding 'ad hominem', perhaps offer remedies to the serious short-comings we are pointing out.
