    The expression thought by many- perhaps some-ones thoughts got away with them & landed on paper. :D

    I've had trouble with incorrect info regarding my tree on both Ancestry and GenesReunited, I have tried messages and putting the correct info on small trees but it mostly doesn't seem to work. I have had a couple of successes but that's all.

    And on it goes …..
    Ancestry informs me that my Lady is found in 9 other trees

    4 of these trees are mine
    2 are relatives trees using my info/help
    The other 3 don’t even have this person in their tree only someone with a similar name to a member of her family.

    The only hint correctly referencing my lady is on my own tree - the very same one that I am searching for her on !

    Not much help really !

    I am finding that the ame problems occur on My Heritage, so not just Ancestry. & some of the names which come up as matches have to be seen to be believed. Even with way different countries.

    Yep one hint was in Australia - only matching “fact” was the surname.

    I did a search the other day for a male and it gave me a female and the only similarity was their names began with the same letters. :rolleyes:

    Some trees also have my Mum in USA and also at another time Tasmania. My Mum never went out of Kent, apart from holidays in Ireland and Scotland.:rolleyes:

    One of my Gt.G'mums, left Bermondsey to whizz over to USA to birth a babe & back again in short sweet time without being missed at home where I think from memory she was already incubating yet another.
