C. D. Hackett, Thanks! Your answer was simple and direct. I agree with you, about verifing facts. In fact, I try to keep track of all new information I get regardless, of from where I get it. In other words, I search each new fact I receive until I find the same information in three different locations. Such as, birth certificate, marriage certificate, death certificate, etc. Then I make the change to the profile if my original information does not agree with the other two or three peices of supporting evidence I have found.
Example: Anyone could say they were related to Gretta Garbo (GUSTAFFSON). My mother use to say she was her cousin by marriage. However, I have found a lot of information that is pointing to that possibility, but, not enough to prove it yet. Therefore, I have kept the information I have on her separated and have not yet added her to my WikiTree profile for now.
There are thousand's of people with the exact same name, but so far I have not found any with my same name that are related. Don't want to discourage anyone, but if the shoe doesn't fit your foot...then your feet will get blisters and you won't be able to wear it. To put it shortly, if Aunt Violet's shoes don't fit the mold to fit into my family tree you won't find her name there hanging from my family tree. Unless, either, someone else put's her there or I make a mistake unintentionately. In which case as soon as, I learn of the error I will correct it. So, keep adding sources as you can. Thanks, in advance.
