I've just found a corker.
I have Andrew Dunlop and Janet Johnstone marrying in East Lothian in 1730
So Janet must have been very special indeed to be able to die in Pennsylvania in 1908   ;D

My hypothesis is that RootsChat pays Ancestry, FindMyPast, etc. to produce bogus hints, defective trees, phoney name collectors and whatnot so that the posting rate at RC remains high.  Fully 10% of the posts on RC must fall into the whine, moan and rant category, of which the pay sites are the primary targets.
