“I have been on ancestry for almost 3 years now that amount of information that I have found has been tremendous. I have learned so much from my family history that I did not know before. But I do think a lot of people go on to ancestry without really understanding exactly what the site is. It is a compilation of various state and federal public records. Ancestry does not write any of the information...they only organize it for the use of its members. So, if incorrect information, incorrect spellings, wrong dates, lack of information on documents, etc, are found by members, it is not the fault of ancestry. The incorrect information comes from the public records this way, which can happen for a lot of reasons(i.e. transcription errors, lack of documentation from old records, lack of education and knowledge that was much more common in the mid 1900s and before, etc). Also found on ancestry is a compilation of members input, such as their own public family trees, photos, stories. These trees are made solely by ancestry members, again-NOT ancestry. Other family trees can be great as guides, but must never be taken as facts”

“ gets all Kudos”

My experience on exceeded my expectations and was entirely a good thing. I located missing family members and was able to plan a family reunion almost immediately. I recommend this site to anyone who is working on a family tree or looking to find missing relatives.
