There is a lot of conflicting information on some of those Ancestry tree. Very confusing and frustrating.

When we set about creating this site, the vision was to share / acquire / transcribe additional data to assist research , at that time online information was sparse, census data 1881, 1851 and I think 1841 were reasonable accessible online.

A number of trees will no doubt go back to the early days and perhaps lack "triangulation" of data, some will be best guess....

Todays challenge is very similar take as much information as you can with source tags if possible and assemble it , hopefully with data that cross checks i.e. dates / children's names to a fair degree of confidence.

However once you go back beyond 1841 , it gets harder to correlate data to get high degree of confidence

Its all part of the fun or challenge
