I am obsessed with genealogy...I love exploring my family's history. And, not being perfect, I make mistakes, and usually I can tell you what documentation led to the mistake. But I just ran across an online family tree of someone who has my immediate family in it...and EVERYTHING is wrong. I mean, there is just no place to start telling this person the error of their ways! I wrote a polite note on my father's record, but then I saw the futility of trying to correct the 2990+ records this person has accumulated in the past 2 months. And, the tree is public. sigh
How do you all deal with problems like this? I guess that is one reason I keep my tree private - I don't want people 'yelling' at me when I make a mistake! :-) How many more people will copy all this bad info? Do you check for your family's info in public trees?
