  1. One thing you need to watch out for, when using the familysearch family tree, is the errors. Incorrect parents, date errors, incorrect places, etc. For example, Thomas Standish, who married Lydia Belton, isn’t the son of Myles Standish of the Mayflower, even though alot of people think he is. Children being born before or after their supposed parents died, or being born before of after they’d be able to have children, children being born in the US, when their supposed parents never left Europe, etc.
