I have received yet another enquiry based on family trees hosted on ancestry.com which contain wrong information.
Now, I am not for one moment saying that everything on my family tree, freely accessible on the internet (though not right now, but that is a different story), is 100% correct, but my database allows anyone to 'Suggest' corrections. I have, for example, recently made a major change based on outcomes from DNA research
However, correcting something on Ancestry is a different matter. Some trees have been untouched for years, and so making contact with the owner is problematical.
The DNA example, above, still exists on several trees on Ancestry. How can the previously published line of descent be corrected? As far as I can see, it cannot.
