The trouble there is that anyone can add to it!!
Having seen the idiotic or rather IDIOTIC "TREES" stuck together for my
lot I can well imagine what my tree would end up looking like!!
When starting out I had Halls contact me from New Zealand INSISTING they
were related to my lot... had Church records to prove it, had paid a so
called genealogist to research them... this "genealogist" had stuck
correct-looking records together. A little bit of research would have
found those Halls still living quite close by, not in NZ!!
I for one wouldn't trust those "Pedigrees" from here to the bin!!
Certainly not putting up my tree for all and sundry to butcher!!
"anybody can add to and change your tree after you submit it, but they
cannot delete it ..." they have 2 Hopes and one of them is Bob!!

While people are writing about familysearch.org
, I want to add that I
just attended a lecture explaining the new FamilyTree on familysearch.org
. We were told
this new FamilyTree contains the old Ancestral file, the old Pedigree Resource File, and
the member submitted trees that were in the IGI. You don't have to be a Mormon to
submit your tree. You just have to create an Account which is free and select a User name
and password. You cannot make your tree private. What was interesting is that anybody can
add to and change your tree after you submit it, but they cannot delete it. There is a
place where anybody can add a comment. I know there was a tree containing my family that
was incorrect many years ago. I am going to try to find it again in this new FamilyTree
and correct the errors. Shirley
