can someone please tell me how reliable is My Heritage family tree

I had a email saying that they had found a match which seems very likely but do not really want to add to my branches on here yet unless I am completely sure

My Heritage family trees are equivalent to Ancestry Family Trees.  They are submitted by My Heritage members.  Sometimes they provide the source of their information so you can check it.  I treat that sort of information as a hint and try to find a source to verify.  If I can find an actual source, then I will use the information.

Thats what I thought but just had to check hoping my DNA will knock some brick walls down on my Irish side now cant wait to see if any matches but nervous at the same time :)

The same as with any other tree. It is only as reliable as the person who created it. Do not rely on any online tree without checking to sources.
