It may be no use venting as it will not change peoples trees on Ancestry but it is still good to let of steam anyway. I have found someone born in 1490 baptised in 1846.

I note that the member who complained about silver haired people has had considerable help from such members.

(I get my roots done about once every 5-6 weeks   ;D )

The problem is that there are very many silver haired people now who have taken up this what can be a time consuming hobby..so they dont do..or do it properly when they are working and they dont take enough care, to get things right and to safeguard living people.

PS You'll be pleased to know that there aren't too many people in my tree.  Although most of them appear many times over.   ;)

I missed the bit about being silver-haired.  Must be getting old and slapdash then!!
My relative had her tree "done" by a friend, she was so thrilled with it until I proved it was all totally wrong and no certificates had been used. She didn't know 3x gt grandmother was bigamous and 2x gt grandfather had married three times!
I don't put my tree online but I have given proven information to the relatives who asked for it.

Some of us were young when we started getting Ďsilver hairí I much prefer it to being told Iím growing grey.  My grandads full head of hair turned a snowy white while in his 40ís.  Iím still hoping to get that look.

I recently found a distant relative aged 2 on 1911 census with WW1 medal cards attached.

I also recently came across my great grandad on a tree supposedly a one name study.  He had the correct wife and children.  But the wrong parents and a mix of his siblings and others.

Itís not worth the energy correcting them.  Just smile and move on.

Give me strength!

I've just been looking (quickly) through a 22,000+ tree of a DNA match.  Early in the listing there is 'a Greek nun' who married Yaropolk I Kiev Knyaz of Russia (950-980). No dates for her but she had a son in 980.

I'm not sure that that is part of my line  ::)

Well I found my first grey hair at 19.

I found one tree that gave my grandmother a bigamous second marriage and set of half brothers and sisters for my mother.
