GEDCOM or similar dumping by people is frustrating
I have done extensive research and data entry on my ancestory tree including a trip to Europe to find records which I have uploaded. It is very frustrating that anyone can overwrite a person in my tree with no sources and no documentation or image uploads simply by using their GEDCOM file or citing another genealogical service as a "source". When they create someone already in the FS database who is in my tree, it effectively wipes out all the work I have manually done. Does the FS program place higher priority on the date created but not the amount or strength of the data? It seems like it does but I can't be sure. If so, that should be reprogrammed.
Also, simply using a geneological data file without cross checking the data is destructive and disregards those of us who put in hard research and verification source work. GEDCOM and similar files are often filled with errors due to program compilation glitches. Something as minor as a misplaced number in a date or an extra comma can cause, for example, a grandfather to show his son as his father or a daughter that also becomes her mother. I respectfully request F.S. try to make an option to lock an family tree from being changed by others like this so easily. There should be a way to keep your work safe and individualized if you want to. Perhaps offering different account types? I would be willing to pay a one time donation or one time fee for any feature or option that keeps people from eradicating my work, uploads, photos and basically messing with my tree
