Hello All

I smiled, at the reference to a test tree online, with imaginary people, because I wonder how long it would be, before someone had the imaginary tree linked to them and purporting it to be the gospel truth.  ;D

What you could do is start a tree with a few real or imaginary people and then see if people can see it.

Regarding the original post question ...

If I got a DNA match, I would want to be contact with them, or vice versa, because perhaps my brickwall ancestor 232 years ago had a Brother and a document they traced back to of the Brother, has a reference to my ancestor. Rather than them simply copy bits of my tree they were unaware of, or see my tree and say nothing.

If I came across a tree which I thought might assist on a link, I'd still want to check out the image/s of the original, or the document for myself.
