On Friday, October 4, 2013, Anne Gillespie Mitchell posted Ancestry Anne’s Top Rules for Growing Your Family Tree on Ancestry.com’s official blog, . I am glad to see that Ancestry.com recognizes that there is a problem with their “shaky leaves.” Personally, I don’t think it went far enough but it is a great start.
Ancestry.com is being flooding with newbies thanks to mainstream television shows such as Who do You Think You Are? and Genealogy Roadshow. I think Ancestry.com could do more to encourage these people in the RIGHT way. I am happy that their business is going so well (the rest of us benefit from that) but I think they do have some responsibility to educate and to promote accuracy.
Thanks, Anne and Ancestry.com for taking a step in the right direction.
