Community Clean-Up Challenge Community Clean-Up Challenge: Problematic dates. Thousands of people in our shared tree appear to have lived for over 115 years, or were born before their parents, or were married after death. These might be simple typos, but a thinking genealogist needs to investigate each one. Will you join our challenge to see how many we can fix by Monday?
