As a newcomer to the field and the site, I'm curious how most folks responsibly approach issues like the following: I've been able to confirm through wills and records that I'm descended from a Philip Anglin, b. 1742 in Virginia and his wife, Frances Cox, b. 1762. There's a very interesting pedigree file on Frances Cox at https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.2.1/SG2T-QG9 which traces back to the late 1500's. But it has no sources, and FamilySearch & Google searches really don't return anything other than references to it or to similiarly unsourced family trees on various websites.
When folks on this board come across something like that, do you simply ignore it because it can't be verified? Note the possibility in the ancestors' records, but not create any new entries? Plan a trip to the county in question? (Ask the gurus here if they can find anything? )
Thanks in advance for any tips. Trying to keep my entries pure of speculation, which is a tough job, as I'm sure you folks already know.
