It has often been asked what proof have you that Mr X is somebody Y.
The truth is you can never be certain many contributors to this site have done extensive work following up documents and checking facts just as I have for 20 odd years.
In the last 20 months using the internet I have found out more than the previous 20 years Yes much of it unproven BUT what a lot of leads.
This site does not have provenance as many Genealogy folk would like to see, it does have many leads.
The worst culprits for giving false information are the commercial sites charging mega bucks for some times grossly incorrect information always check back to source particular
on Census forms on the ones I checked there was at least 30% error rate.
If you can add to or correct anything on this site please do.
PS this site is not all my own work much of it is folk like you helping me to help you.
For a list of some of the great helpers
