Question on unusal source format

Hello,

I am working on fixing the profile of Henry Morgan.  I went to Family Search and the source for his birth information and death information are this:

birth 1813 River Philip etc..

source http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/203788755/person/938866604

The death information refers to the same source in ancestry

Familysearch is writing about the source link this statement : Reason this information is Correct

 

I temporarily wrote in the sources the best I could with the information provided as this:

:"Death of Henry Mayne" 31 July 1874, River Philip, Cumberland, Nova Scotia, Canada, This  information confirmed by FamilySearch.com.  http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/20378755/persom/938866604.

Appreciate any assistance.

Taylor

The ancestry.com link you cite in your question takes you to the Ripley, Parker Tree, entry for Henry Mayne. The ONLY source given for birth and death data in that tree is "Public Member Trees." In other words, there are no legitimate sources for the data. You can not rely on unsourced ancestry.com trees as a source in WikiTree.

I do not see where Family Search recites "Reason this information is Correct". Could you give us the actual familysearch link so we can investigate further. I do not believe that Family Search affirms that sources are correct. If they did, they would have to give a source in confirmation.
