Not for me it isn't. The point of building my tree is to keep alive the memories of my ancestors for their descendants.I do not post my work publicly. I share it privately with all the family I have found. Some of them have posted it and it shows u, mangled within other incorrect trees people copy it into. So my ancestors' memory is mangled with it. I object to this sloppy, greedy trend. The race to see how many names one can add to their tree is hollow.
