The earliest ancestors included in my family tree dated from early Colonial time, not my research but that of a distant cousin. That’s been consistent for several years. Then a few weeks back, I was refreshing my memory as to someone’s birthplace and noticed there were more red arrows on several of the male lines, started following them and went back many generations on several different lines, which as previously mentioned, included Charlemagne, highly doubtful, as well as other members of the nobility. II checked 3 different days with the same results. Absurd.
I had time to investigate a bit more today, and the ancestors whose lines I’d previously followed no longer had such extensive family trees. Back to Colonial times which is documented.
My question is what happened? Were there some unsourced profiles removed during a source-a-thon or were there some erroneous connections made where there was no proof , then removed? I’m really curious as I’ve never run into this before.
