Can someone evaluate this link?

The tree at includes Hubbard-223, his descendants and ancestors.

My question is simple: how accurate is it? Or can we even be sure? The owner traces the line back into the 1400's which seems like a stretch. The owner does not appear to be using primary sources, just member tress.

I wouldn't trust it until I saw the sources, if any, supporting the Ancestry trees.

It is completely inaccurate and cannot even be trusted as a guide. It's just another error filled, unsourced personal website.

Both of the profiles for the two George Hubbards (George Hubbard of Guilford and George Hubbard of Hartford and Middletown) on wikitree are highly sourced.

It sure would be nice if it were all true and sourced all neat and tidy with primary sources but it does not look like it is

Personally I would use it as a research guide not as a source. We all know online member trees have a habit of populating mythological people :)
