They have the birth and death certificates.  Why is ancestry dna not reliable?

I said Ancestry trees are not reliable.  They are very often just copied from other trees and there is no evidence as to the source of the information on any of them.  It is always advisable to view the original source of all information where possible.

Just as an example there is a tree that has Ann Jane Jenkins born 1912 Rhydlewis, Cardiganshire married to William Verdun Thomas, they have a daughter Daisy. There are no images or transcripts to back up the information.

The tree states that Ann Jane's parents were David Jenkins and Mary Ann Davies.  I cannot see a birth registration on the GRO index around 1912 for an Ann(ie) Jane Jenkins showing mothers maiden surname Davies.
