ANCESTRY RESEARCH --- DATA ON LINE
Good morning everyone - This journal is about checking out any ancestry data online . I wish to mention that any research pattern /data /info - given is very difficult to say it is 100 % correct and the further you go back the more so that becomes . Although we have large / small websites givig out millions of ancestry BDM's it is accumulated by humans '.(( with the best of intentions ).People simular to ourselves . I have a family Bible ( 300 years old with other data with it as well ) most of it was documentated by family members and when I was double checking I found Many mistakes and corrected those dates. ) I don't think, that just mentioned , will ever change either in the past / now / or the future. A couple of the very large websites on ancestry online, are well reknown by researchers for their incorrect entries in this field . Unfortuneately we can't correct them for all the reasons you can think of. Just one point to show you - we would be unable to change Say " Familysearch / Ancestry etc along with their Millions of records , as well as many others . WE are all looking at the impossible to achieve .
What do we do ??? Not use them !!! nah !! Like many others I agree.. to use them as a guide and at all times keep checking them out as much as possible with our own research which is normally provided by other outsiders . If we didn't have them along with what they provide ( mistakes an all ) we at most times could not many times do our research checking . Yes it is nice to have our own proven records . As much as we personally try to Make sure they are 100 % correct we still have to rely on those old records completed by people like ourselves who have the best of intentions.It is as one member said " a Guide plate only ." I agree !!! but without the guide plates -- and passing their data on to one who is trying to find ancestry answers --- where would we be - ???? I think we have to make the best of what we can find and add our 100 % corrections and research .I hope this notation may assist any one researching their ancestry .
Till we meet gain - regards - edmondsallan
