I was researching some data on one of my direct ancestors and found a lot of information that was on FindAGrave that is not in WikiTree.
The missing information included a lot of data on who his children were, pictures of his gravestone, as well as other information.
I posted a comment on his profile page for the Profile Manager:
Henry Sherman is my 10th GGFather.
I have found some extensive data on Henry Sherman at the following location:
It lists all of his children plus some other information.
Would you like me to add this to his profile?"
The response I got from the Profile Manager was:
"Sorry, I appreciate it, but Find A Grave is not a valid source."
I was quite surprised by that response.
I'm sure that there is some level of uncertainty in information that you might get from FindAGrave but it seems to me that genealogy is rarely ever 100% certain and it is a judgement call of what level of uncertainty you are willing to accept.
It would be very difficult to get anything done if we insisted on absolute certainty in any data we add to WikiTree.
Is it wrong to use FindAGrave as a source?
