General Genealogy

As useful as Ancestry is at times there is too much information in your face. I have a couple thousand hints outstanding not including the 5 thousand I already ignored. There are too many leads at one time and you can get overwhelmed very easy. Also, you get a tendency to accept records without reading everything and could end up with wrong person in your tree. I still use Ancestry for getting records but I review each one and copy the information to http://www.wikitree.com/. This way I can really read and decipher what some of the older documents I find.
