I have 2,398 marked people meaning direct ancestors in my genealogical database. I started long before computer search and gathered information from more direct sources (actual records). It seems my information has been copied numerous times, even bastardized after a while, and now I find info online that I absolutely know to be incorrect because I possess the actual physical family evidence dating back to the early 1800s. The LDS records are the worst because they seem to accept everything without verification. Genealogical information used to be more freely available but now most of it seems to be locked away in places like Ancestry.com. I’m debating with myself whether I want to try to dig deeper or not and sign up with Ancestry.com.
Interestingly, every ancestral line I have traced has gone back to before the American Revolution. I have no known ancestor immigrants to America after the Revolution. Primarily they come through Maryland and Virginia to Kentucky to Indiana on my dad’s side and Pennsylvania to Ohio to Indiana on my mom’s side.
