Sorry Elyse, I was very disappointed.
All the names I looked into, had too much redundant info and there was even a message that stated the data was collected "automatically".
My 7th GGrandfather's family with his 2nd wife, showed there were ten children, however, there is no evidence that they ever had any more than 4 children, all of which are fully documented. But there, of those ten, several had the same name or even listed the child as "Unknown" Fisk, none of which had a birthdate.
My experience is that any data collected using automatic processes, has always been rife with erroneous data.
So, to me it is more confusing than helpful.
Sorry,
Bob Birt
