Geni.com and Deutsch Family of Hungary/Slovakia #hungary

Nathan Rosenshein
 

Dear All,

As we know, questions often arise about the reliability of information
on Geni.com.
I don't intend to get into that general topic now.
I am writing about certain GENI.COM researchers, such as BALASZ Deri,
and others, who have posted tens of thousands of names into GENI over
the last while, especially relating to the DEUTSCH Family
of Hungary and Slovakia (my grandmother's family).

This research has me connected to the ancient kings of ASSYRIA, dating back
3000 years! Obviously, although quite interesting, I cannot seem to get
from
these people any indication of the source of their research, their
methods, etc.

Personally, I cannot imagine how any research on Eastern European Jewish
families can trace back 3000 years, unless it is relating to a rare minority
of prominent families.

Any relevant comments would be appreciated,

Thanks,

Nathan Rosenshein, Montreal, Canada.
